I just spent some extended time with a new friend, and she shared this little saying with me. We don’t know the author, but she/he certainly coined a powerful metaphor.
Note the essential elements:
focus – concentrate on a task or need
capture – this reminds me of “Carpe Diem”, seize the day
develop – use our creative abilities
The final verb, “take”, comes into play when plans go awry, as they often do. I hope to waste far less time bemoaning my failures and mistakes during the rest of my life than I have in the past. What a waste!
And I’d also like to practice gratitude far more faithfully. I can start easily this week: Thank you to everyone who helped me by hosting me on their blog or left an encouraging comment, posted a review, or bought my new release, With Each New Dawn, I’m truly grateful for all the support.
Just as it’s never too late to develop a new friendship, it’s always the right time to say a hearty thank you.
