I think I read in Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey that we should all take the time to write our on eulogy. This practice is designed to help us establish how we want people to remember us. I think this is a good practice, but today’s blog is not a eulogy, it’s a different type of birth announcement.
Today, I Scott Culberson have lived on this Earth for Forty Two years. Don’t pity me or feel sorry for me that I have reached this mile stone. Next year I hope to reach the next and the next year the next and so on and so on. I choose to live for the present, respecting the past and looking forward to the future….which has now become the present. Time marches on so I choose to LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST every second of every day. Join me in taking the time to say THANK YOU, I LOVE YOU or GOOD JOB. Ok so I had a birthday, big deal……yes it is a big deal…..TO ME and my creator. He put me here for more than one reason; to be a son to my parents, to be a brother to my sister, to be a husband to my wife and a father to my children and I believe he has placed me in your path to offer support to you on your journey of life. I LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST by supporting my family, by volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, by supporting my friends, my co-workers, and my clients.
Today I am NOT planting a seed.
Today I will take the time to water the tree that is already grown.
Tomorrow I will water that same tree again.
That tree is already here and it deserves to continue to provide shade and shelter for many years to come.
If the tree becomes sick I will nurse it back to health.
If the tree needs pruning I will do it with care.
This tree will be my tree and it will grow stronger than years past.
My purpose for this Happy New Year the Year of Forty Two is that I am able to help you to LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST. With a smile and a positive word of encouragement. I choose this to be a year to engage and enable those I meet through continue correspondence; both in person, and via note cards, phone, text, facebook, etc. I have faith in the Lord that he will provide another year of opportunities to serve others, thus fulfilling my purpose and bringing me continued happiness in life and in work.
Thank you for being apart of my Forty Second Year I hope we can visit in person some day soon. Personal or Professional I am here for you. I am a REALTOR by profession so allow me to help you, your friend and family to……..
LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST,
