If I can expect no more from the other than what he chooses to give and share…
If I can be on my way to perfection knowing that I might not reach it in this life time…
If I take responsibility for what I say and do and ask for forgiveness when I make an offense…
If I hold no regrets to my brothers..
If I understand that you as well as me are unique and that there is a slight chance one might like or do what the other likes or does.
If I understand that my life is only in my hands and not in other’s…that I am not a victim of the circumstances,
…then it would be a better world.
But always, there is an excuse to be happy.
Most of the time life is not the way we want it to be (I am sure there is a higher reason for that), and that may not be on our hands…
Nevertheless, one can always smile, unless you don’t really want to and enjoy being with a bad humor.
So it all depends on you.
Every day is different from the day before and from the day after. That, you already know, I know.
What I know too, is that most of the times, though not all the times, I think about today.
“Today” doesn’t mean to be a fashion day, because today is not always at hand, though it is.
Perhaps it is easier to think about what happened in the past and what might happen in the future, and again one is gone and the other…. is taken for granted.
What brings me to today, again. There is no way we can get fulled of energy other than to appreciate every moment (the present you have guessed right) because is the only thing we can hold on to. The past is there to be remembered all right, and if positive memories come in is a good investment.
Tomorrow may come with surprises and even if one is optimist about it, but today, hey! is like being connected to an endless source if one chooses and it is endless if you grab every second of it.
Today is always a good day.
