What has already happened before is not what will happen next. Because right now, you have the opportunity to change direction.
If you’re moving in a positive and fruitful direction, you can choose to keep going that way, and even to accelerate your progress. Or, if you’ve experienced difficulty and disappointment in the past, this is your time to make a change.
When you focus on what’s already happened, it can be easy to feel permanently stuck in a bad place. So focus instead on the fact that you can, right now, choose a more positive direction.
Today is a new day, and it is your day to live in the best way you can imagine. It is your day to move in precisely the direction you choose.
Though rising above a difficult past will require great effort and commitment on your part, you certainly can do it. And there’s no better way to spend your time than making your way forward and permanently locking your disappointments in the past.
The disappointments of the past will begin to fade away as soon as you let go of them. Let go, look forward, and know that you can make this next day the best one yet.

Good Morning dear readers,
I hope you are having the best Saturday ever. The weather here is dreary right now. The good news is that we have just had a tiny amount of rain here. I believe it was so fine they didn’t record it. I have my little path that I use to get to town. The other day, I stopped at a local gas station. They were telling me all the roads that were closed. Come to find out the road I was on was the only road not under water. Also something I had forgotten about was the tornado that touched down, They haven’t even had a chance to clean up and here come the water. We have a local station (The Co-Op’s), they send a person around to take pics of the area and I was watching that this morning. There was I don’t know how many places I recognized on that channel. It is so heartbreaking, to see their houses almost underwater, to watch your neighbors coming and going in boats and big diesel trucks. Then you see pics of the High School students filling sand bags along with convicts, neighbor helping neighbor anyway possible.
It might be heartbreaking, but when you see people taking action and doing what has to be done, it makes you feel good about the human race. You automatically know that there is not all bad in the world, there is still good. It would be wonderful that after all these tragedies, the feeling of brotherhood could still prevail. Perhaps it will.
I must apologize for yesterday’s postings. I got interrupted right in the middle of them. Come to find out they are doing a standard blackout during the weekdays. They are trying to fix the telephone line the tornado tore up. It is lovely living in the country.
Green acres is where I want to be……….
