"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good." - author unknown

Let it be kind words, not those of anger.....a choice to enrich your life and that of one who means the most to you. A lesson for us all, unfortunately most don't take notice until something touches us that is life threatening. Then it is too late. Time stops for no one, no matter how much we wish it. Seconds turn to minutes into days, weeks, months and years. The only thing that changes in how time passes is in our choice as to what we do with it, not time itself. The sayings "one day" or "when things slow down I'll......" don't apply. Things only slow down when you slow them.

As George Bernard Shaw was quoted as saying "People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want and, if they can't find them, make them."

Those who let circumstance determine who they are, always regret what they didn't take time to experience. They blame the ones and things they want the most and make them suffer for their lack of choice, further strengthening the blame. Remember the last two letters of that word, blame. And instead of living in denial and regret, no longer allow time to slip through your hands like sand....impossible to trap or hold onto. Instead, experience the blissful warmth of becoming one with it.
