Many years ago, I had a horoscope that was quite impactful to me. I would like to end the year sharing it with you: “Ten thousand years from today, everyone you know will be long dead and forgotten. There’ll be nothing left of the life you love, no evidence that you ever walked this planet. This, at least, is what materialists would have you believe. But suppose the truth about reality is very different? What if in fact every little thing you do subtly alters the course of world history? What if your day-to-day decisions will actually help determine whether and how the human species survives the turning point we’re living through? And finally, what if you will be alive in 10,000 years, reincarnated into a fresh body and in full possession of the memories of the person you were back in 2012? Which is why I say : LIVE AS IF YOUR SOUL IS ETERNAL!”
I could certainly use the fresh new body even though I do not believe in reincarnation. I am not sure that my actions could/would impact the entire human species. I do believe that God has a plan for each of us but our free will allows for those day-to-day decisions and those definitely are long reaching, and do determine turning points we are living through. I do want to have memories for myself and my children to cherish and hold on to for generations to come. I do want evidence that I was here on Earth and that I gave it my all, that I enriched the lives around me, that I positively touched many souls. As far as having full possession of the memories of the person I was back in 2012, I just hope as I continue to grow older, I hang on to some memories, I am not even wanting full memories. (Getting old really does mess with your memory. Ha ,Ha.)
I want to be remembered as good, kind, giving, loving, and full of life. I want my quilting to remain as evidence that I was here, that I had passion, that I positively touched many. I want to believe that in God’s plan, my soul is important. I choose to: LIVE AS IF MY SOUL IS ETERNAL and I will be remembered.
So as I enter the new year, I need to reevaluate my day-to-day decisions, plan my time for quilting, fun, and time with family and friends. I need to rethink mistakes and enjoy the coming year. I hope to blog more frequently, take more pictures, and quilt, quilt, quilt. P.S. I hope to learn to take video for quilting tutorials and stuff.
I send my love and wish you a Happy New Year. Not just say, “Happy New Year”, but truly wish it for you! Keep quilting! Sue
