Quote of the Day
“The best day of your life is the one
on which you decide your life is your own.
No apologies or excuses.
No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.
The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey
and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”
Thought of the Day
How often do we allow ourselves to be controlled by others, by public opinion. I imagine this is what it is like to be a politician, a business leader, or a member of the clergy. I am none of these and have little use for public opinion, my thoughts and my actions are my own.
I am by nature, very independent, my father raised me with the notion that, the more I learn to do by myself the less I will have to rely on others. I make my decisions good or bad, and I deal with the consequences, I blame no one.
I live each day as it comes, I meet my challenges when I am faced with them, and I never look back. Too often I see those who choose to dwell on the past. The past is just that, past, gone, history, no more, to dwell on that causes you to lose touch with the moment, and the moment is really all that matters. Every thing else is either the past, or the future, neither of which we have any control.
Sure, there are those who will say, “But, we can plan for the future.” Sure you can, and while you are busy planning for the future I am busy living today. Bear in mind the future is not guaranteed or promised. If you live today, the future will take care of itself. Live today like it is the last day of your life and if you are fortunate enough to wake again tomorrow, live tomorrow like it is the last day of your life.
Live like the humming bird, she goes from flower to flower collecting enough nectar to survive today, basking in the moment she flits about enjoying all that nature has provided for her. At the end of the day, weary from her frolicking and eating, she rests. If she awakes in the morning she does it all over again.
