“Be kind once a day – even if it’s just in your mind.” – Yoko Ono
Life is a blessing – each day no matter what!
The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here – live it.” – Thomas S. Monson
“Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt -The day as it comes. People as they come.. The past, I think has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.” – Audrey Hepburn
..and I’d add ”-or by dwelling on the past” – to the end of her thought! I’d also say -Plan for the future but don’t fret. Enjoy today – L I V E and appreciate the ability to be in a present moment! Today is a gift. Don’t go through the motions of your life – taste your food, don’t just eat. Pause to find some joy in what you’re doing – right now..even if you don’t think it’s anything of significance..it is because you’re here.”
“You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.” – Pema Chodron
There are many phrases and mindsets that I don’t relate to personally. When people say “Those were the good ole’ days,” it’s as if they’ve decided nothing in life will ever compare. Of course, life and moments of time along our life journeys are special. However, I say every day that you’re living and breathing is an another opportunity to create new memories, new great moments and always hopeful no matter how great these now or past moments are – the best is always yet to come. That’s living – to me!
