Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today. Will Rogers
I needed to see this quote! For some reason, I have been thinking a lot about the past. I have lots of good memories. But lately, I have been thinking about the less-than-good times. Why is that? It is a waste of time, for sure.
It also makes it hard to go to sleep. And without good sleep, I am lazy and grumpy. When I am lazy and grumpy nothing gets done. I just sit and think miserable thoughts. Remember the song, Sitting in the Garden Eating Worms? That’s me the last couple of days.
So, I talked with Teddy and Jack. They are very good at helping me see the bright side of life. I will have a good sleep tonight, and tomorrow I will be my usual good-natured self.
Okay, so today is Friday and I am posting as if was Thursday. Why? Because I am a procrastinator and I kept telling myself yesterday that I would get the post written later. Of course, later never came and now today is yesterday’s tomorrow.
Not only is this a day late, but today, like yesterday, I still am empty-headed as to what to write. So, today I am going forget about yesterday and look forward to doing some writing tomorrow.
Well, not tomorrow. Monday, I will do some musing, I think.
Every year I have a word of the year. Sometime in November or December I start thinking about what my word will be and by January 1 I know what it will be. There have been years I didn’t like the word but it is always a word I need to know and think about. Eventually, it becomes clear to me why the word was chosen for me. It’s like magic.
This year the word is Today
I need to be reminded of this. Lately, I have been spending a lot of time in the past. Not just remembering stuff but letting some of it bother me. Though there is much of it I would like to erase from memory there is more I am happy to remember.
Besides the past, I have been thinking a lot about the future. It is okay, even wise to consider the future and make some decisions and plans for it but not to be consumed with what might happen and all the what-ifs that come with overthinking the future.
I think this has to do with being old. When one is young there is little past to think about and the future seems too far away to give it too much thought and life is busy. That changes. In time the past becomes long, the future short, and there is more time to ponder. I must remember; I have been given today and that is enough.
Today is the most important day of my life.
I am not so old that I don’t know what day it is.
I know it is Thursday and this is Wednesday’s post. I had computer issues. So, here it is the future and I am posting the past today.
It is still way too hot! Stays around 100*.
So another day without a walk around the neighborhood.
Walking on a treadmill just isn’t a real walk.
But I do have something for Tuesday Chatter.
I had a delivery today.
A new bed!
Didn’t need a new bed but sometimes,
well, you know…
The picture makes it look like an extra long twin but it’s a queen.
Really, what else would a Queenie sleep in?
I thought the bed would satisfy my wanting something new.
Now the armoire looks old and weary and ready for the guest room.
So, now I am saving for the really beautiful dresser that goes with the bed.
It never ends, does it?
