Your daily dose of true beauty advice…
Suppose you knew a teenage boy who said, “I want to think much on all occasions of my dying.”
We might worry about a young man like that. But these words actually came from Jonathan Edwards, who wrote seventy resolutions for his life before the age of twenty.
Edwards was wise enough to realize he needed to make the most of life since death would be a reality.
He said, “I frequently hear people in old age say how they would live if they were to live their lives over again.” So here’s a young man looking at older people, and he hears them say, “I’d like to do this differently if I could live my life again.”
Edwards didn’t want that to happen to him, so he thought through the end of his life while he still had time to shape it. He wrote, “Resolved, that I will live as I shall wish I had done, supposing I live to old age.”
What could you do today that will be an investment in tomorrow?
