No matter if it’s a Monday or a Thursday,
a new month or the middle of it,
or the 1st of January or the 8th of February.
Any ‘today’ will give you the same opportunities
as these stated ‘start-over-days’ will do
– it’s just a matter of how welcoming we are
towards the concept of today.
Also how much we actually allow
ourselves to live in ‘the now’.

Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to me.
Happy Birthday to us.
We are gonna have a good time!
I know nobody will see my status
but sometimes, when I am bored,
I go into the garden,
I cover myself in earth and
I pretend I am a carrot.
Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.
The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.
But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.
Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.
Three thing I will change on this schedule:
Find the good on a given situation. Sounds like Pollyanna? Not really, it’s easier to become pessimistic than being optimistic. No should or could or would. These are pitfalls in everyday life. Do or do not. The daily examination, I agree with this wholeheartedly. It reminds me of the quote “unexamined life is not worth living.”

Who else would teach me about computer but the younger generations? Not just computers, I learn so much about life from them. It gives me so much pleasure listening to their constant chattering as if there is no tomorrow. They don’t seem to run out of topic to discuss. I’ve missed out on the gathering on Christmas, and since I cannot be with them, I have privy to their Facebook.
One thing I’ve noticed that the children’s mind is starting to develop and hardly post any selfies. There are more writings than their faces. These are some of my favorites.
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH! There was a time in my life when I wanted as many people as possible to like me and be my friend… but now I am proud to say that the QUALITY of my friendships outweighs the QUANTITY of friendships. I AM SO THANKFUL TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP. YOU DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND. (God Bless!)
DID YOU KNOW… that the word MERCY in the Bible the root word is CHESED in Hebrew? It means steadfast love, covenant, loyal, faithful, love. So when we say “Have mercy on me” we aren’t only asking for forgiveness, but we are asking that they will continually love us past the hurt, pain or suffering that we may have caused. (That’s beautiful.)

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I’m changing myself. #changing #yesterday #today
I don’t understand the tags. Is that where you are getting your quotes?
#today is better than #tomorrow. I just checked it out.
Secret as to where I get them. Haha. I read sometimes?
The longest walk we will have in our lives is the journey between connecting the heart and the mind #persevere (deep, very deep…)
Every day is a small death to who you were yesterday. #dailyDeath (I hope this means you are reborn today?!)
The only things I’ll ever regret are the things I didn’t do and the times I’ve stopped trying. #regrets (EDITH PIAF. Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, Subtitulado)
And especially this one: Family is everything.
i thank You God for most this amazing
i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any—lifted from the no
of all nothing—human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
