When one has made a lot of mistakes and foolhardy moves, it behooves him/her not to judge others. All the bad choices and consequences of my past have served to create in me compassion.
One thing I will not do, is judge you. Everyday is a new beginning. No matter what happened yesterday, I can do better today. If, per chance, yesterday was a great day, I can still strive to do better today.
I do not know what this day has in store for me. I know what I plan to do. That is not to say what I will be.
So far, I haven't done what I planned to do and it's still early. In the past, getting "off track" this early would have thrown me for a loop. Instead, today I choose to enjoy sitting here in my robe, drinking tea and writing about life. Sounds pretty good to me.
I will move forward with my day, taking it as it comes and be happy, no matter where the wind takes me. The only thing I can really control is how I feel about it all. I am most grateful and thankful to have choices today. To have love in my life and very little to cause me worry.
Dale Carnegie, in his teachings, presents one question that stands out in my mind; "What is the worst thing that can happen?" Ask yourself this question in whatever the situation. Then ask; "Can I handle THAT?" If you can say yes, I can handle the worst that could happen, then surely you can handle anything else.
Fantasizing the freedom to enjoy any given circumstance the day offers up to me.
