Sorry folks---I'm just in a down and out mood and feel the need to remind ourselves why we are here. Forgive my rambling

Ralph Waldo Emerson has accurately said, "One of the illusions of life
is that the present hour is not the critical, decisive hour. Write it
on your heart that every day is the best day of the year."

Today is an important day. That problem you solve, that decision you
make, that time you enjoy can shape your whole life. The way you and I
ap­proach today, and each day, is crucial. Our lives are built by a
series of days like today.

I discovered an affirmation that can help in living each day fully:

Today I will live through the next 24 hours and not try to tackle
all of life's problems at once.

Today I will improve myself , body, mind and spirit.

Today I will refuse to spend time worrying about what might
happen if...

Today I will not imagine what I would do if things were
different. They are not dif­ferent. I will do my best with what
material I have.

Today I will find the grace to let go of resentments of others and
self-condemnation over past mistakes.

Today I will not try to change, or improve, anybody but me.

Today I will act toward others as though this will be my last day
on earth.

Today I will be unafraid. I will enjoy what is beauti­ful, and I
will be­lieve that as I give to the world, the world will give to

Whether these are the best of times or the worst of times, these are
the only times we've got. Live each day fully and you will look back
on a life that made a difference.
