Attitude and perspective dictate what kind of day I’m going to have. What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have. I can entertain several options. I can grumble about my health or I can be happy that I’m alive. I can complain because I have to do housework or I can appreciate the fact I have a place to call home. I can whine about the terrible weather or be thankful that my lawn is turning green. Or I can whine about having to go to work or be overjoyed because I have a job. I know we can agree that the choices we make are really important.
I’ve reflecting on the great responsibility I have in helping advance the lives of my family, friends and whomever I come in contact with. All my actions determine, to whatever degree, the length and breadth of my impact. My husband frequently encourages those he comes in contact with to impact someone today. He says be an “impactor.” No matter your station in life you are an ‘impactor’ whether you realize it or not.
Today there are myriads of “impactors.” You will find them in the entertainment field, sports figures, teachers, religious, dads and moms, and on-and-on. For the most part folks can be examples of things that are good. Yet we can’t help notice that some “impactors” seek only to advance personal agendas. They’re usually here today and gone tomorrow.
One of the ways that I seek to impact people is through dream interpretation on my web site, DreamLab7.com. It’s a platform that is instrumental in changing lives. While many frown on the relevance of dream interpretation one can’t dispute the fact that we do dream. If we can agree on that point, the question that needs to be answered is “if we dream, why do we dream and what do my dreams mean? There must be a valid reason why we dream at all.
Attitude and perspective will govern as to what kind of day I’m going to have today. It can be productive or it can be mired on a canvass colored in self-pity. We’ve been given a most important gift…life. How we use that gift determines situations and outcomes that impact lives. Personally my desire is to impact people every day in any way possible. Whether it’s sharing a comforting word on the phone with a friend, or asking the checkout person at the grocery store “how’s your day going?” or just being a day-to-day example of being a person demonstrating good character and integrity. I enjoy being an “impactor.”
