“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift” – Eleanor Roosevelt
“Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the
Varieties and realities of your existence;
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendor of beauty:
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But to-day well-lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day!
Such is the salutation of the dawn.
From the Sanskrit.”
The Optimist’s Good Morning
We have a choice. We can live in the past and be miserable and unhappy, or we can pick ourselves up and move ahead in life.
~ John Templeton
The wisdom imparted by John Templeton applies to you and me every second of our existence. What are the choices you face at the moment? What can you do to move forward with your life?
The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as he did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that he will make all things right
if I surrender to his will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with him
forever in the next.
The future is always beginning now.
“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
—Henry David Thoreau
Today’s Quote by Willie Nelson on the present moment
I take it not only a day at a time, but a moment at a time, and keep it at that pace. If you can be happy right now, then you’ll always be happy, because it’s always in the now
