- “The real reason for not committing suicide is because you always know how swell life gets again after the hell is over.” – Earnest Hemingway.
Enjoy the present, that’s all that really is. Picture the wave breaking on the shoreline, always in the present while fading into the past.
Peter Shepherd reminded us to “Find happiness by enjoying the journey, not by awaiting the destination.” If you are not enjoying the present remember what The Good Book says
- ‘it came to pass’,
- not ‘it came to stay’
When what used to be natural and easy becomes hard, its time to pause and let nature take its course. Stop fighting against the forces of nature. This happens when you try to hold things in the present that have naturally expired and should now be moving into you past. Remember that people come into your life –
- for a reason,
- for a season,
- but rarely forever.
You do know that 2 years from today you will be much than you are today, just keep going.
- “If You Won’t Be Better Tomorrow Than Today, Then What Do You Need Tomorrow For?” – Rebbe Nachman (Born 1772)
- “The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be”. – Marcel Pagnol, French novelist, playwright, and filmmaker
Remember, the sun will rise tomorrow, it always has.
