I'll live my life to the fullest. I'll be happy. I'll brighten up. I will be more joyful than I have ever been. I will be kind to others. I will loosen up. I will tell others about Christ. I will go on adventures and change the world. I will be bold and not change who I really am. I will have no troubles but instead help others with their troubles.
You see, I'll be one of those people who live to be history makers at a young age. Oh, I'll have moments, good and bad, but I will wipe away the bad and only remember the good. In fact that's all I remember, just good moments, nothing in between, just living my life to the fullest. I'll be one of those people who go somewhere with a mission, an awesome plan, a world-changing plan, and nothing will hold me back. I'll set an example for others, I will pray for direction.
I have my life before me. I will give others the joy I have and God will give me more joy. I will do everything God tells me to do. I will follow the footsteps of God. I will do my best!!!
The above was not reprinted with permission. But it's the story, the thing that I read that changed EVERYTHING for me. It was written by Brooke Bronkowski when she was twelve years old.
I'm... well I'm not twelve. And I have no idea how much of my life I have ahead of me. But more than anything else, I want to live the way Brooke desired to live.
I want to be happy.
I want to tell others about Christ.
I want to go somewhere with a mission, an awesome plan, a world-changing plan.
I. Won't. Be. Held. Back.
A few years later, Brooke was killed in a car accident. Brooke lived her brief 14-years exactly the way she wanted. Brooke did her best.
I pray, with all my heart, that I will too.
