Thoughts On New Beginnings...
Sunday, November 16, 2008
I was going through some of the postings and came across a topic
'starting a new beginning tommorrow!'
A nice idea, right? We all make mistakes and make choices we regret. That's usually why we end up where we are, right? And everyone deserves another chance, and tomorrow is always a new day... But then I thought...
Memories are all well and good, but I don't live in yesterday, and although I thoroughly believe that planning ahead is always a good thing, I don't live in tomorrow. All I've got is this moment I'm in.
When it comes down to it, it isn't what I plan that matters, it's where I am and what I am doing right now that matters. I can't change where I've been, and where I'm going depends on what I do with each moment, so...
I guess my new beginning is now.
I have an anonymous quote on my wall that I forget to look at it sometimes and this was a nice reminder; it says
"The point of power is the present. Use it well."
Maybe I need to take it more to heart.
That being said, now is a good opportunity to say just how much I really appreciate Sparkpeople and all the great tools and supportive people on the site, and I'm going right now to the phone to call my family and friends and tell them just how much I love them... and I'm taking the cell phone so I can get in my walk while I do it!
