Just do a little better today than we did yesterday.
Only we know what is better for us.
Sometimes the best thing is to forget ourselves, and make someone else happy, but we must never forget ourselves for too long.
If we forget who we really are, then we lose direction - as John Lennon so wisely said "How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?".
We must set ourselves some kind of ideal, which becomes our distant shining star, unattainable, but constantly leading the way.
If every step we take is in the right direction, then we will progress more quickly than those who are speeding in the wrong direction. So we can afford to smell the roses on the way, and to intentionally take the time to appreciate the wonders of the creation that surrounds us. We are at last able to see that the journey is more important than the unattainable destination. For the first time, we are able to appreciate the power of now. We can let go all of our fears, hopes and aspirations for the future, unburden ourselves of the guilt and conscience of the past. and arrive................here.............................now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
