Monday musings…

“What is day is it?” asked Pooh
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet
“My favorite day,” said Pooh

Pooh has a great attitude. We should have the same but we don’t live in Pooh’s world. He lives in a happy and loving world where no matter what today brings it always ends up wonderful and there are sweet dreams. Pooh’s world is fiction where all ends well and everyone lives happily ever after.

Our world is not a place of fiction, though there are those that would like us to believe their fiction is truth, and all does not end well with sweet dreams to follow. Still, we should try to have a good attitude. But there are things that just get in the way. Some of the things that get in the way of my good attitude and don’t make for favorite days in my life;

  • Sometimes I don’t see what others see when looking at the same things
  •  Sometimes I don’t hear what others hear when listening to the same things
  • Some things I think are right others think are wrong
  • Some things I think are wrong others think are right
  • There are people I like that others don’t
  • There are people I don’t like that others do
  • I don’t love or even like some people
  • Some people don’t love or even like me

That’s just the way it is. I am trying to be more understanding. But it is a bumpy road.

This day is the only one we have
It may not be a favorite
Let’s make it the very best we can

Wednesday, writing whatever…

I have no great or even sorta good ideas of what to write today so I will just let my mind wander. My mind is very good at wandering but I will do my best to control where it goes while here.

In the past, Wednesday was when I posted my writing challenge, In Other Words. But not now. Now this is where I will write whatever I want to write about…until I change my mind and do something different. There will still be a writing challenge but it will be on Friday. Same concept as In Other Words but I’m calling it Friday, 5 Lines or Less. Check it out on Friday and join the challenge…the more the merrier as they say. I don’t know who they are but one day I will write about who I used to think they were. See, I am wandering👵

That’s all for now. I have to do some shopping and stuff. Or maybe…

Quotes and Questions #16

Q&Q“Finish every day
and be done with it.”

John C. Maxwell

Is this something you do or do you worry about the day that has just gone by?

Most of the time I can let the day go. But there are times when I can’t seem to go to sleep because I just keep thinking about the day and what I did/said or didn’t do/say. What a waste of time. Can’t change the past. Best to learn from it and let it go. Losing sleep over the day just ended makes tomorrow less than it is meant to be because you are too tired to enjoy it. We don’t know how many tomorrows we have ahead of us so it’s best to be done with the day, go to sleep, have sweet dreams, and wake up rested and happy.

Memory banks…

“Spend the afternoon. You can’t take it with you.”
Annie Dillard

It’s true you can’t take it with you.
We get one day at a time and we can’t live it more than once.
Still, I am not a person that overly thinks about time and how I spend it.
Some days are very productive in that I do a lot;
go to work, shop, cook, clean, write, crochet, you know, stuff.
Then there are days I do very little;
walk, sit, play with the boys, visit with friends, read, daydream, nap.
Those “very little” days are just as important to me as the productive days.
Maybe they are more important.
Maybe the little days are put in a sort of savings account.
Then when you need comfort and strengthening during difficult times
you can go to the vault and pull out some of those little days
and spend some of it in thoughtful recollection and reflection.
Yes, I think the little days are in our memory banks collecting interest
making us happily wealthy in life’s stocks and bonds.
