Accept What Is, Let go Of What Was, And Have Faith In What Will Be

I was reading Wendell’s blog this morning, and I saw he had a piece of inspiration attached to his page, so I thought I would go and check out where it came from. The page has a lot of very good quotes to help lift you.

How many times have you looked in the mirror and thought “oh boy, look at those bags under my eyes – I had a late night; look at those wrinkles on my forehead – I am getting old; look at those lines at the corner of my eyes – I am sad.

How many times have you looked in the mirror and thought “oh boy, look at those bags under my eyes – I had fun last night; look at those wrinkles on my forehead – I smile a lot; look at those lines at the corner of my eyes – I have laughed a lot.

I’m guessing the first is more common. Next time you look in the mirror, think of the good you have done for others. Think of the fun you have had getting where you are now. Think of the future and the enjoyment you will have getting more lines. There is good in every bad. There is colour in every grey. There is silver on every dark cloud. There is a new dawn every day. Just because you don’t feel the heat from the sun doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Smile and see the good, even if you have to search a bit more for it.

  1. I think we can all relate to being overly critical of ourselves at times. This was a lovely post to read at the end of the day for me Al. Thanks! :)

  3. Yes change any negative sentences into positive ones, like you say in your own words. I have worked on Saturday for 3 hours on a report for work, and I am not saying, oh dear I worked for 3 hours, no i am actually saying, I was so productive and rather proud of the report with many graphs I have done. I am glad I did it at home in peace and easier to work on my 2 monitors. It makes me happy to have finished it well. Today is free though, going out later to have some fun… :-)

  4. We had a large storm last night. A rainy night in Georgia! with the loud thunder claps, so I was up all night! Thanks for your post, there are a lot of good quotes in there. But I guess like minds think alike. That was a nice picture yesterday, coming soon! Have a wonderful weekend!
