Healing Heartache in Family Lines– Today Is A New Day!

Have you noticed that there is always a chance for a new beginning?  Our choices can lead us in any direction we choose.  Sometimes the consequences of our choices are not clear at the time decisions are made.  Many times we learn, through sad experience, that we may not be creating the life we truly desire.  We may also feel damaged by the lingering, negative impact of the choices of others.

Family Tree Quest refers to our quest for belonging, for meaning, for making the changes in our own lives that promote our own best good. No one decides that for us. It is up to us to discover it for ourselves.  With that in mind, we acknowledge that we intend to create positive change in THIS generation.

To do so, we follow the 3 Guiding principles of TODAY’s ChangeMakers:
We glean wisdom from the past (rather than stay stuck in victim stories),
Learn to
be happy and live a purpose-filled life as TODAY’s ChangeMaker, and
Prepare courageously and confidently for the future—come what may.

Also, with that in mind, we acknowledge that our choices in the present effect future generations of our own family tree—that group of ancestors and descendents to whom we are related. It’s a good time to ponder and take action on what we are deciding to do to stabilize and add joy to the meaningful relationships we have in our lives, and set goals around those important priorities.

If you identify with this message of positive change, I invite you to join us—we are TODAY’s ChangeMakers.  JOIN the Quest by leaving your name and email at Family Tree Quest.com, and let’s stay connected.

Let’s stop dysfunction in its tracks!  I’m confident that you can do whatever it takes to succeed because, after all, this IS a NEW DAY !

To your happiness,
Carolyn

Happy New Year to TODAY’s ChangeMakers

As TODAY’s ChangeMakers (TCMs), we can look forward to a lot of joy in this new year.  As we follow our guiding purposes, we empower ourselves to create positive change.  For TCMs everywhere, I hope you will stay true to your guiding purposes as TODAY’s ChangeMaker which are to

  • Glean wisdom from the past rather than stay stuck in it.
  • Be happy and live a purpose-filled life as TODAY’s ChangeMaker.
  • Prepare courageously and confidently for the future—come what may.

This wonderful reminder from Jeffrey R. Holland is perfect for TODAY’s ChangeMakers.  It is a perfect fit for the first guiding purpose of gleaning wisdom from the past rather than staying stuck in it.

He says, “As a new year begins and we try to benefit from a proper view of what has gone before, I plead with you not to dwell on days now gone nor to yearn vainly for yesterdays, however good those yesterdays may have been. The past is to be learned from but not lived in. We look back to claim the embers from glowing experiences but not the ashes. And when we have learned what we need to learn and have brought with us the best that we have experienced, then we look ahead and remember that faith is always pointed toward the future. Faith always has to do with blessings and truths and events that will yet be efficacious in our lives.

So a more theological way to talk about Lot’s wife is to say that she did not have faith. She doubted the Lord’s ability to give her something better than she already had. Apparently, she thought that nothing that lay ahead could possibly be as good as what she was leaving behind.

To yearn to go back to a world that cannot be lived in now, to be perennially dissatisfied with present circumstances and have only dismal views of the future, and to miss the here and now and tomorrow because we are so trapped in the there and then and yesterday are some of the sins of Lot’s wife.”

Let us embrace our present moments as we elevate our daily life circumstances throughout the year.

To your happiness in this new Year,
Carolyn
