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.
Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter. Satchel Paige
Yesterday was my birthday. I know how old I am and it’s weird. I mean how did I get so old? And why don’t I feel old? Okay, I do know that I don’t physically feel the way I did when I was young. But I don’t feel as old as I thought I would feel when I was young and thought about old age. But then I didn’t really think I would ever be this old. Given my lifestyle back in the day I think most people thought the same.
One thing I do know for sure is that I am happier as an old woman than I was as a young one. That’s one of the gifts I have been given over the years, happiness. And the sense that I am okay. I’m not brilliant, or especially beautiful. Oh, I am smart enough and though I was not much to look at as a teen I did get better with time and age and was often told I was beautiful. And these days people seem to be surprised when they learn how old I am so I guess I’m doing the aging thing okay. Or maybe they are just humoring me. Whatever, it doesn’t matter.
Anyway, yesterday was a good day, a happy birthday. And now yesterday is gone and it is today which is the only day I can live so I’ll make the best of it. Everyday has its good and not so good and occasionally some pretty miserable stuff happening but in everyday there is joy. I am abundantly blessed and so thankful for another day of life.
