Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Sometimes we wish our lives away. Research shows that we spend a lot of time ruminating about the past, or speculating about the future. To make things worse, much of this non-present thinking is negative. To live a happy, positive life we cannot be surrounded by the negative things. To assure ourselves of a better future, we have to first make the most of what we have right now.
There is only the moment. The now. Only what you are experiencing at this second is real. This does not mean you live for the moment. It means you live in the moment.
Perhaps one of the greatest lessons we can learn is that we really only need to take care of today. It takes courage to let go of painful memories or circumstances. But when you do it surely does feel great!
Dear Father in Heaven, In the endings show me the beginnings.
In the beginnings help me to let go of the endings.
I read the little prayer shown above and thought to share it with you all today. I know I'll be praying it and trying to live more in the present moment each day.
Too much time has been spent on the past, and the future is unknown.
If you worry about what might be, and wonder what might have been, you will ignore what is.
