As we bid farewell to 2020 and welcome in 2021, I felt impressed to share the following tale.
The Tale of the Two Buckets
The tale is told of two buckets that went down in the well. As the one came up, it said, “This is surely a cold and dreary world. No matter how many times I come up full, I always have to go down empty.”
The other bucket laughed and said, “With me it is different. No matter how many times I go down empty, I always come up full.” (LeGrand Richards, In Conference Report, Apr. 1951, p. 40.)
So much of life comes down to our perspective. In equal measure, our lives are determined by what we do. And if 2020 taught us anything, it’s that there is much that we can do to be better prepared for the unpredictable yet inevitable vagaries and challenges life presents to us.
I recommend a wonderful article on a few but very specific things that you can do to start 2021 out right and, by so doing, be blessed with a greater sense of serenity and hope, no matter what the future might hold.
