As Time Goes By - by Mr. Daddy
Do you worry about things???
Do you put a lot of pressure on yourself to do what you think others expect of you???
Is there stress caused by undue demands of your time?? (by yourself and others)
Do you think that you are rowing the boat alone???
I THINK NOT!!!!!
We all engage life at 60 seconds per minute, 60 minutes per hour.
Every morning we are handed 24 golden hours. They are one of the few things in this world that you get free of charge. If you had all the money in the world, you couldn't buy an extra hour. What will you do with this priceless treasure Remember; you must use it, as it is given only once. Once wasted you cannot get it back. (Source Unknown)
Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find "tomorrow" on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, “If I had my life to live over again”. Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day!
Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. Og Mandino
As Carl Sandburg so aptly puts it,
"Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you."
Which fits hand in glove with a quote from Lillian Dickson, "Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once".
So spend wisely friends....
"It is not hard to live through a day, if you can live through a moment. What creates despair is the imagination, which pretends there is a future, and insists on predicting millions of moments, thousands of days, and so drains you that you cannot live the moment at hand." Andre Dubus
And let your world turn....
But live in the moment at hand....
May God’s peace and blessings be with you all.......
And in the words of Mohandas Gandhi, “Though we may know Him by a thousand names, He is one and the same to us all.”
