Every day, when we wake up, it’s an opportunity…an opportunity to make good things happen (or bad), an opportunity to be nice (or mean), an opportunity to lead (or follow), an opportunity to nurture (or destroy), an opportunity to succeed (or fail). We are our own gatekeepers.
As I take in more and more of our world, I realize that I am my own gatekeeper. I have my family to support me, but in order to be there for them, I have to be the best gatekeeper of me. Each small win adds up, and if we can be good gatekeepers and knock out small wins each day, now that’s a victory, in the bigger sense of the word, and in the bigger sense of the world.
Define what gatekeeper means to you…beliefs, conduct, ethics, deeds, actions, thoughts. No matter the description, mindful gatekeepers do what’s good for them and, as a result, it should be good for all.
