How to face the challenges of life.
1. There will always be a sunset and a sunrise – you can’t
hold back time
Get real, life is not a rehearsal, live for now! Don’t live in the past, it’s gone!
Fine, have happy memories but don’t dwell on what was bad or what might
Another thing! The future hasn’t happened yet – so don’t worry about it. The
future is in your imagination, so great, by all means be excited and positive
about what’s possible but don’t screw yourself up with fear of the unknown.
Worrying about the past and the future will stop you experiencing the
moment – now!
Of course, time is precious – but time is only something us humans have
invented to measure the days passing. What’s more important is how we
choose to spend the time.
Don’t tell me you never have enough time – there’s always enough time, what
matters is how you choose to prioritise what’s important to you. Are you
spending too much time at work? Must be more important than spending
time at home then!
Getting stressed at work, working long hours? It must be more important
than your health then!
Upset about lines on your face and grey hair? Losing what you have had must
be more important than what you have got then!
How old are you? Never mind – whatever your age – that age is special to
you – celebrate it. Throughout life, we experience different things and that
experience is partly dependent on our age and maturity – so what you are
right now is perfect, enjoy it!
Whenever you see a sunrise, wonder what surprise or miracle will happen
today. When you see a sunset, be thankful for what is right now!
“The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never
dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal
sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each
in its turn, as the round Earth rolls.”
