Day By Day

Day by day, words are helping me understand myself better because there is reflection. There is introspection. You dig into the thoughts and feelings.
Having participated in blog awards, I remember coming across the question (not the exact words but something like this), “What is your motto in life or What is the greatest lesson guiding you.” I would usually answer “Everything happens for a reason.” Sometimes I would post the Serenity Prayer: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” These are really my favorites.
Suddenly, a memory came up to me just today. I guess this is how the brain works. Sometimes it is trying to find something, an answer to a question. You will just wake up one day with a thought or an idea in your head. I swear I have already forgotten this a long time. I believe almost two decades ago, I was so much into this book. I realized that I have held on to its lessons from that time up to present. This morning I hurried and looked this book up in the library. I can not wait to read it again, looking forward to new experiences, new lessons.
Everything happens for a reason and the Serenity Prayer are side by side with this:
“There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they’re necessary to reach the places we’ve chosen to go.”
― Richard BachThe Bridge Across Forever: A True Love Story
So let go of the past. Do not get stuck in yesterday. Just remember the good ones. Never be haunted by pain. Do not over think the future. Stop worrying about tomorrow. Just be the best that you can be today. Focus and live in the moment. Day by day.

  1. Whether one believes in God or not it’s important to understand that we live in a universe that is governed by the rules of cause and effect. The more we understand and keep in mind these two rules the easier life is. But it’s not always easy. Sometimes decisions and actions that seems good turn out to have been big mistakes, while mistakes can turn out to be blessings in disguise. Only experience, common sense and wisdom can help us to choose well or as well as we possibly can.
