TO LIVE… TO LOVE… TO LEAD

Join our Mail list

Over the years, I have often thought about what it means to LIVE (I also sometimes read LIVE as LIVE; other times, I also read LIVE as LIVE… phew). Back to my point, I often wondered if living entails enjoying your life to the fullest and even at that, I still find it bogus and vague. I am bothered sometimes, that maybe we do not understand why we live and hence, we do not live intentionally.

I heard something today that I think will stick with me for the rest of my life. The person told me, don’t just be successful, be significant. I found out that maybe I have just been selfish all this while; wanting the best for myself sometimes and not caring about the impact on another. Maybe I just want recognition and accolades and not care about processes. Maybe I just didn’t care enough about smearing a smile on someone’s face, listening a little more, giving a little more here and there, encouraging and praying with someone just a bit more. Maybe it has just been all about me.

It’s a new year for me and a new day, hence I have resolved not just to live, but to love and to lead. So at the end of my life, let it be known that I just did not LIVE, but I LOVED as well as LED a wonderful life.

Remain Blessed.

MY PRAYER

‘Tis today I say a prayer
That day by day,
May I see You clearer
So I don’t sway.

My heart calls upon You
Please hear my plea;
Let your blessings, like dew
Fall upon me.

I come to You, my King
Help me know You –
With everything,
I’ll follow you

Hear me today, my Lord
So I’ll find rest
Fight the evil horde,
That’s my tempest.

Tune my heart to You,
Let my heart sing
Let my soul accrue
Praise in all things.

Let me see only You,
Just you, my God
Fix my eyes on you
To see You’re good
