It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 8, Page 25, Book 19

I wish there was a way to know youre in the good old days, before youve actually left them.

Andy Bernard, The Office

August 25th - savor every moment of today. 

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.

Wayne Dyer

Life is not a dress rehearsal. We only get one chance at it. There is no time, but the present. The past has gone and yesterday hasnt come. 

No sense longing for the good old days, but better to make the day we have on hand a good day. 

Nostalgia exerts a strong allure and extracts a steep price. When we are too busy wishing for the past, we dont live fully in the present. We get distracted from what we should be doing right now.

In fact most things are better now that what they were years ago. Improvements havebeen made in medicine, technology and manufacturing that make things much better than what they were.

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thing. Go forth to meet the shdowy future without fear and with a manly heart. 

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Good quotes today. I smiled at the first one all thru the post. And yes, if we do not watch it we will try to live in the past, Some of us have more past than others to live in. LOL
Love you lady,

It is literally true about keeping moving even in pain. A year before my mom died she was involved in an accident and she was hurting and just quit moving - then was the beginning of her end. :(

Lovingly remember the past but enjoy every single day for what it brings. All of them are gifts from God!
