The day hasn't started yet and it is so peaceful in my house. I am on my second cup of decaf (which, by the way, is NOT the same as regular) and just enjoying the quietness of the house while my family is sleeping. Life is so hard, but still very much worth the effort. I am going to tell myself the same thing this morning that I tell myself every day....
I will be calm and peaceful and will enjoy my everyday tasks at work and at handbell practice tonight.
I will not yell.
I will not worry.
I will not get frustrated when my husband and son fight.
I will smile when I clean out the litterbox.
My job will not stress me.
My coworkers will not all like me, but that is just a part of working.
I will pray often and silently as I do what needs to be done today.
I will not focus on those activities during the week that are so unpleasant.
I will not be sensitive and think that other people just don't like me.
I will be good to my body and my soul.
And I will get my Christmas tree down before Valentines Day.
Now, I have put it all on my blog and satisfied myself that life "is what it is" and that I can't change the past or live in the future.
I can only live today. Tomorrow is gone and yesterday is not here yet.
The best I can do is to learn from the past, live today and plan for the future.
So, I now have to leave my safe little blog world and face the day. The only changes I can make will have to be made today. I can only dream about tomorrow.
Thank you for letting me share!
