Proverb + the WORD on Wednesday

"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.

Beautiful post, Aimee. I try to remind myself every day to live in the present. It sounds so easy, doesn't it? I notice that Making Memories...is a blog on your sidebar. Did you know that Erin is my daughter? It made me smile to see her there.

Hi, Marilyn!
Thanks for your comment. It was my pleasure to visit your blog and wish you well! Being a grandma myself I was very excited to see you join 'our' ranks, and I know, having visited your blog before, that you will be a GREAT one:)

I think we travel in many of the same areas...I love it!

Thank you! I am happy that it was a blessing to you! You and I will have to keep encouraging each other to keep on living in the present...

Yes, I did know that Erin (inventor of the octo-dog)is your daughter! In fact, I think I originally found her blog through yours. Love her ideas -- she is creative and talented, just like her mom. By the way, both of you make me smile!

Thanks for visiting.
