[I’m part of a group on FaceBook called This Week`s Wisdom. And this is what came through today… Really good food for thought since I’ve got a lot on my mind. An awful lot… and yet when I totally trust the whole process and the rightness of what I’m doing (We’re doing), I can find this place of not worrying, no anxiety. Just a knowing that it’s all already here and happening and is working out, far beyond my abilities and fingers and mental jibberations. So here’s some wisdom to share along those lines. Oh, the group address is: http://www.facebook.com/jodyengland#!/group.php?gid=65040760165]
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is “Yesterday” with all its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone forever.
The other day we should not worry about is “Tomorrow” with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control. Tomorrow’s sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born. This leaves only one day, “Today”. Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities, Yesterday and Tomorrow, that we break down. It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad, it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring. Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.
So Decide to be happy today, to live with what is yours, your family, your business, your job, your luck. If you can’t have what you like, maybe you can like what you have. Just for today, be kind, cheerful, agreeable, responsive, caring, and understanding..Be your best, dress your best, talk softly, and look for the bright side of things..Praise people for what they do and do not criticize them for what they cannot do..If someone does something stupid, forgive and forget. After all, it’s just for one day. Don`t be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful, and believe that AS YOU GIVE TO THE WORLD, SO THE WORLD WILL GIVE TO YOU.
