New year. New chapter. New page. But, same old Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This year I am only planning to go on social media once a week. Today I posted my weekly post on all three social media sites. Lovely. Now I can dive my into real life.
Where are you? Where did you come from? Where are you going?
Today is a very special day. Today you are alive and today you are here. There is a saying, older but wiser.
Facts are when you get older you are less concerned about your future and more concerned about savoring your present. Every day above ground is a good day. Sometimes when people are young they are miserable, when they get older and look back on their youth they wonder how they could have been so stupid to be so worried about stupid things, and why they wasted so much time.
There are studies that show people over the age of 50 are often more content because they know who they are and they know their story.
Young or old, it’s good to be present. To be calm and to be mindful means to take your time and enjoy the journey. Too often we rush for the destination, and never think about savoring the present.
There are 3 things you need to be happy, something to do, someone to love, something to look forward to, but let me add a fourth, something to focus on right now. It is important to do one thing at a time with great love. It is a gateway to supreme happiness and contentment.
You are born alone and you die alone, so make yourself your best company. There’s nothing wrong in loving your life.
Don’t let the greedy marketers tell you that you should be miserable because you don’t have a brand new house or car or wear designer clothes.
You have the best present in the universe. You have now. Make today your day and own it! Okay?
So, if you feel sad that your number did not turn up on Powerball here is something to celebrate!
You have the power to decide how to spend an even more valuable commodity than money!
What is that cherished treasure that even a royal named Elizabeth the First (on her deathbed) would trade all the wealth of her kingdom?
You know the answer.
It’s your “Time!”
Now, never forget.
It may be free, but it’s up to you as to how you use it.
That is your secret power as long as you live!
