A Long Day

A Long Day

Just like that, my 24 hours has elapsed. Yours too. Yeah you. It probably seemed endless at about 2pm (ish) wondering when the day will finally come to an end. Well it has.

Welcome to the hard part. THE REFLECTION. After 24 more hours you will need to have an honest reflection about how your day was and if you reached your goals. Even if it was just to stay alive for today, guess what, you sure did it. Did you tick off everything on your to-do list? Did you willingly lazy it out? What lesson did you learn or unlearn? Did things turn out the way you planned or did life surprise you ‘again? ‘. Again? Yes again. I am quite sure you may have noticed how little control you have over your everyday life despite how hard you try to plan it. I am learning to let go of this hold I think I have on my daily activities and just enjoy every moment.

Before you lay down to sleep and ask the Lord your soul to keep, how GRATEFUL were you for today? I do not think it is ever wise to compare your ‘predicaments’ with others because everyone is going through something in their own right and one cannot feel superior in suffering. I just finished watching one of the episodes of Call the Midwife (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_the_Midwife) and Nurse Crane said to Trixie “Sufficient unto the day are the evils thereof”

And on a final note I can say that we have tomorrow to start afresh. A new day, 24 more hours gifted to you to live anew. It always is a blessing to get another chance.

Whether you like it or NOT!

The sun will shine as bright as can be, weather you like heat or not. (Pun intended)

The moon will only shine brightly at night , whether you like it or not.

The day will be 24 hours, no more, no less, whether you like it or not.

It is very important to always live in the present because whether you like it or not it will become the past what was once regarded as future. The present is now, being in a consious awareness of oneself, surroundings and situation.

All in all, whether you like it or not, what has to happen will happen. The question is will you be making it happen, or will you be letting it happen to you?
