Human Nature...

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it...

Sometimes we all find ourselves living too much in the what if...we  sometimes tend to forget to live in the present and  tend to dwell too much in our yesterdays.  We all have some sort of story in our lives.  We have all been through good and bad times and just by looking at a person one cannot know what that persons life is all about.  One cannot make assumptions unless one has walked the same path.

We have all made mistakes we may not be so proud about.  The key here is to learn from them and to try and become a better person.  Just yesterday Arvid and I were out shopping.  One of the things that really annoys me is stupidity.  Well seems like yesterday was the day everyone we met was guilty of it.

Like many, I also tend to get caught up in the past.  Sometimes it's OK and other times it's not healthy.  The past is over.  We should all live for today and try to remember that we only have one life.  I am not perfect and have never claimed to be.  I do know that I try very hard to be patient and to not get upset easily with people.  Not always possible, but I am trying.
Life is not always easy and dwelling on the past sure does not make it any better.  The best thing to do is to move on and live for today.  There are enough irritations/annoyances out there to let our past also become an issue in our present.  I can't go back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.
Here is to our today's and may each day be better than ever.

 I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday...
