"If we don't change our direction,
we are likely to end up where we are headed"
This proverb is true in many ways...
and I think it is true for my personal situation.
I am day # 3 into making some changes
and am looking forward to today.
I know, as a wise blogger said, that some days will be harder than others,
but I need to stop living in the past
(focusing on losses, regrets, mistakes),
avoid giving strength to fears and anxieties of the future
(healthwise, national and international problems, etc)
and live in the present.
And that reminds me of these WORDS...
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own."
and this commentary...
Let us not pull that upon ourselves all together at once,
which Providence has wisely ordered to be borne by parcels..
.by our daily prayers we may procure strength to bear us up under our daily troubles...
And now, it is time to eat (starving!)
and then cleaning and baking.
