The following are collection of phrases I read somewhere. I usually just put together all these lessons in my head, and try to remember them by heart. Sharing to you some of my favorite credos:
Yesterday is history and tomorrow is a dream. Today is a gift. So live TODAY, be present.
I love this phrase because it guides me when my mind starts to wander off.
It is very nice to reminisce and appreciate your journey by looking back. I often recall some memories in the past from my childhood, teen years, when I started working, the family where I grew up as well as the dearest friends along the way. I can say life was simpler then. Some make me smile, some make me cry. Definitely, looking back makes me understand more my present life. On the other hand, there are times when I keep wondering what my life could have been if I chose a different path. Then I am left with questions, lots of questions of what could have been. Then I go back to my credo. The past is history. I can never go back or change it. It is useless to over think and waste my time and energy about things I can not change.
Every circumstance in our lives (both good and bad) are necessary for us to be where we are right now. There is a reason for every event, every encounter with people who walk on our path.
People come and go in our journey, and some linger for a while. There is still a reason behind. As of now, we do not know why. Only God knows why (by the way, I love this song by Kid Rock. I remember my brother and his friends)! So just welcome the people in your life right now. These are people we love and cherish, and some we might dislike or hate.
It is good to have dreams and hopes. They keep us going. They inspire and motivate us. It surely helps us to have a happier life. And as we have an eye for the future, we should bear more importance on TODAY. If we keep looking back or forward, we might miss out the feeling and the beauty of today. Try to recognize and appreciate the people and things we have right now. We are blessed in so many ways. I believe that if we cultivate in ourselves this way of thinking, we can be happier and satisfied.
Bloom where God planted you. You are special. You are blessed. Refrain from comparing yourself with others. You will either find yourself superior or inferior. You are special. You are blessed.
Have a beautiful day!
