Words of Wisdom

Each day I try to read something inspiring to encourage me throughout my day. I really do try to view my life's glass as half full - or even REALLY FULL when I am having an especially great day. Today is a day that I am struggling. I feel like there are some things that aren't fair that continue to take place and I want these loose ends tied up and done! But in life loose ends often stay loose and one must decide to be angry and frustrated or to seek inspiration and feel better. I did the latter. I was reading a daily devotional that is emailed to me and there was a story about an elderly lady who met life's challenges with great grace and joy. When asked how she did this, she confidently responded with these words:

"Be today who you want to be tomorrow."

After I stared for a moment at this profound sentence, I decided that I don't want to stay mad or wallow in disappointment or spend another minute dwelling on something (or someone) I cannot change. But I can change my attitude. I can choose to be today who I want to be tomorrow. I bet I will have a lot more tomorrows if I can do this. Stress has a way of limiting your tomorrows. Anyway, I just thought I would share this to encourage others as I have been encouraged. Here is a picture that helps me feel at peace.
