Last couple of days have been rather trying. A lot more nausea and throwing up with confused head. Add to that the car being vandalized, problems with my email and there are times when I can border on the edge of poor me territory.
I love receiving comments on the blog or direct email, be they letters, jokes, inspirational messages. I love receiving them but feel bad I am so far behind in replying.
It really is uncanny how, when I need a boost suddenly bang, there is just the message I needed to read. I thank all that have taken the time to leave me a comment or send me an email. You can never really know how much they have helped me and how much I appreciate them.
It helps me face my reality and keep things in a more proper perspective. The actual fact is I am a lucky man. There are so many that have things much worse than I. Wow, I just reread this last couple of lines, have I ever grown or evolved or something over the past few years. If I jump back in time and look at my mind set a few years ago. Then I would have found it really strange or even laughed at the idea. How could anyone that has been told they are dying still feel they are lucky or recognize that others have it worse off. Take that to my thoughts today, have I ever changed.
I am a lucky man in so many ways and I know it. I realize this is where attitude or perspective come in. You can be the luckiest person in the world but if you don’t realize it and appreciate it, it counts for nothing.
I stop and look back now and can see so many times when my life was wonderful. To often, I see now, I didn’t realize or appreciate it at the time. Instead of enjoying the wonders of the present moment, I was to often locked in memories of the past or worries of the future. Focus on life should not be our next goal or vision. Life is what we make of it in the present, while working to the goal.
I read some where, yesterday is nothing but a memory, tomorrow nothing but a dream, today is what we have. Lets live our todays.
