Chapter 3, Page 23, Book 10

Put some gusto into your day!

They say that as we get older we should make a point of learning something new every day. I have found that I do learn something new every day. In today’s world it’s not hard to find something you didn’t already know. It ‘s a great way to keep your life full of that little extra spice in life that gives whatever you are doing seem more worthwhile.

Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle.

One quote I saw said:

An idle mind is the devil's workshop.
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's

Change, whether by choice or by chance, requires a new dance. I’ve let go of doing a lot of the things the way I’m used to and have learned to wait much longer to find the time, energy and inspiration to get them done.

You are only as old as you think you are. If you embrace new opportunities, seek new learning and stay motivated and lively at heart, you can still do anything. In fact, given the wisdom and experience you’ve amassed over the years, you can probably do more today than you’ve ever been able to do before!

Today is God's gift to you. Every day as a precious gift from God. Not only is today a gift, but today is a present day. In the Bible the Psalmist tells us that This is the day which the Lord hath made, not was the day, not will be the day.

This is the day which the Lord hath made. There are two days that can steal the joy out of today. One is yesterday. And the other is tomorrow.

Living in the present moment means that I can enjoy every day because it is just that, another day to live, love and enjoy.

I hope your Tuesday is a terrific one!

‘On Ya’-ma

P.S. I am having some difficulties with my desk top computer so if my entries are not regular in the days to come please know that it’s because I had to take it in for repairs.

If the Lord makes it, then it is good and I will try not to mess anything up today. It is a dreary day in Michigan but I am out and about and will find something to learn about. There is a wealth of that out there for me to look into. I hope your day is wonderful!

Thanks for the reminders!! I love learning new things...maybe a little too much. I probably should finish what I start once in a while.

Have a great day!!

that is a good idea, Ma, to try to learn something new each day. It does keep our brains working for sure. I know even after 30 plus years doing the type of work I do, I still run into words I've never heard of which makes me research them and that helps in my learning daily (at least on work days, LOL)

hoping your computer problems get fixed fast and that today is a great one for you :)
