Today’s newness and what it offers

I wonder how far or fast you can go today if you carry yesterday’s burdens and woes into today. Today has enough problems of its own waiting patiently for solutions. So why tie yourself down and then complain that you are not moving fast enough.
Let the worries and frustrations of each day end with it and begin each day on a brand new slate.
Today is a new day, the first of April , 2016; there’s only one of today in existence why not make it count?
Joy is a choice, to be happy also is a choice ,to be swallowed up in sadness is within you sphere of decision making, to feel lost and frustrated always is also a choice. I am not saying don’t feel sad or depressed or frustrated at times , of course those will come. I am saying don’t let the failures of yesterday deny you of today’s joy, don’t let the fears of last month deny of this month’s adventure , don’t get stuck in a cycle of pain and worry and so forget to live, or to fight for the things that matter.

Start today and this month with a mindset to “put away the ranger and be the king you were born to be.”
Live a conscious life today and this month not on cruise control and see yourself blossom and become more than you thought you can be.

Daily prescription; A psychiatrists view

For a sparkling personality and an ever beautiful day;
A teaspoon of pride,
A tablespoon of ego,
A pinch of narcissism,
A sprinkling of grandiose delusion.
Totally avoid servings of guilt and regret.
Don’t approach anhedonia and nihilism.
Stay away from the bottle labelled sadness and low mood.
Rather have about 5mls of mania and 2mls of eccentricity.
Avoid paranoia and antisocial prescriptions .
Have a healthy dose of optimism and motivation.
Don’t forget encouragement, a bottle a day will do.
You can also add a gallon of hope taken over the course of the day.
Carry tablets of healthy interaction and use as required.
And above all soak in a bathtub of love before leeaving the house and share that love with others.

***You are allowed an unlimited number of refills for this prescription.

Different strokes…..

Yesterday the Pope was in the capitol and Catholics (Christians) were happy. He talked about the threat to the family and about immigrant among so many other things.

Yesterday more than 700 people died in Mecca. They were just devout muslums doing their best to fulfil the injunctions of the Holy Prophet. They died in a stampede and many more were injured.

Yesterday there was a bomb explosion in the Yemeni capital , dozens were killed

A few days ago the coup plotters in BurkinaFaso “surrendered” saying it was a mistake to have gone down that path.

Everyday in the world there is a ray of sunshine and a cloud of darkness. There is cause for joy as well as sadness.

Dreams are built and dreams are crushed, people are born and people die.

Whats the lesson from this?

Try and live a fufilled life everyday, don’t retire to bed angry or with some unresolved conflict in your mind. Be happy as much as you can even if it takes all your wit to achieve it. Be respectful to those you meet in the course of your daily activity. Bear no ill will.

When offended don’t let it simmer and boil your soul rather let it out. Talk tobthe offender and let it out of your system.

Be deliberate in choosing to live a fulfilled life each day. You can not be successful by accident.
