Happy Monday, September 9, 2019
Welcome to my Monday Blog, dear Friends!
My thoughts are on the present today. The past is just that – it’s past, gone, done-with, over!! The best thing to do about the past is simply learn from it and leave it there. Now tomorrow is a different story. We can do something about tomorrow by not making the same mistakes of today.
Ever hear of “New Year’s Resolutions”? Surely the past is what the New Year is for; however, we don’t have to wait until January 1 every year to let go and send our pasts walking and begin living in the present…do we?
There comes a time in our lives, when we must walk away from all the drama and negativity. Folks who create disharmony simply because sadly, that’s them, are they’re just not good for us, are they? it’s a great idea to surround ourselves with people who make us smile, laugh, and feel good about ourselves. Forget the bad, focus on the good. Don’t live in the past, the future is so much brighter if we just open our eyes and hearts and choose happiness. Don’t be a whiner, either – how about we just spread the JOY at every opportunity?! Ya know, I have a good friend who has such a loving heart and is quite charming…I’ve noticed over the years that when even one or more are engaged by this friend, its always the same: I’ll observe an on-going conversation and when this person leaves the conversation, the others remark about how wonderful my friend is. Seriously, it never fails. This friend is a great role model for us all because she spreads joy and laughter wherever she goes. Another interesting thing about this friend of mine…she’s lived in a wheel chair for over thirty years, having been stricken with MS as a young wife and Mother of three…Oh, and yes, I know what you’re thinking: ‘Does she really just roll-up in her wheel chair to a conversation wherever she goes and an every opportunity?’
YEP, She does!!! Hallelujah!!
Jesus has already made happiness possible for us all, and it’s up to us to choose to live in that happiness, harmony and love. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Our Gift of Life is too short to be anything but joyous and grateful! It’s also a good idea to learn to laugh at ourselves and grab every moment of happiness possible, as we live our precious gift. Falling down is part of Life, getting back up is Living that Life!!
Life is too short…let’s remember what Snoopy said to Charlie Brown above about living…
YES!! Happy Monday, my dear Friends!
GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!
I love you,
