Monday musings…

“What lies behind us and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared to
what lies within us.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The past is over and done with, yesterday can’t be changed. Whatever has happened we can learn from to help us be strong, resilient, compassionate and caring, people of integrity today. The future isn’t here yet, we can’t live it today. We can think about it, dream, plan, hope and, work to make the world a better place tomorrow.

It matters little what we look like, or seem to be like, on the outside. What matters is what is within us, what is deep in our hearts and minds. We can take the hurt and pain from the past and let it help to make us more understanding of the struggles of others. We can take the beauty and happiness of the past and share it with others and help them to see that these are meant for them, too.

Yesterday and today are the foundation of tomorrow.
We are meant to use what is within us to make a better world.
