My past is my wisdom to use today. . . my future is my wisdom yet to experience. Be in the present because that is where life resides. Gene Oliver
Your best LIFE Starts Now…
What does the future mean or look like to you? What excites you about the future and can you use only five words? Today I woke up feeling a little sad… What was bothering me? It wasn’t clear, until I realized how much I missed the excitement of the daily post challenge. How silly, you might say; get a life! I do and I have.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Eleanor Roosevelt
Maintaining PEACE remains paramount globally…
I’m a little blue and I understand that being present and moving on is important. Sure, but allow me a moment of silence, a feeble adieu, a last lingering glimpse at 2011, a silent thank you to what was and to what will be. I’m feeling blue and it’s not about you. The future waits; that is true.
“Do your duty and a little more and the future will take care of itself. ” Andrew Carnegie
LOVE overcomes hate and chaos…
No one truly knows what the future holds. We can speculate, predict, insist on logical outcomes based on facts, and in the end, we simply must be present… and that’s okay with me. Let’s Focus on Now!
“Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it onto future generations.” George Bernard Shaw
The Mayan APOCALYPSE skips December…
For all those waiting for the world to end in 2012, I suggest you live your life, don’t hold your breath, enjoy your time, and imagine a sunny day in 2013. Yes, 2013 will come to pass, and the apocalypse will make nary a sound as it tries to huff and puff and blow us out… We’ll skip its feeble hiss as we hug and share another New Year kiss. I’m excited about that. More below 😉
“As long as anyone believes that his ideal and purpose is outside him, that it is above the clouds, in the past or in the future, he will go outside himself and seek fulfillment where it cannot be found. He will look for solutions and answers at every point except where they can be found–in himself.” Erich Fromm
Being PRESENT determines our future..
I love the title of the painting above. It is called: Things of the Present in Front of the People of the Future… Sometimes I feel like we are living in a futuristic bubble… and that we are just not fully conscious of it. One day it might snap, crackle or pop and then it might never happen. For some, it won’t matter and for others = Be Present.
“Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.” Roger Babson
SUSTAINABLE ecosystems ensure we survive…
We talk a lot about a sustainable future and yet we don’t do enough in the present to ensure we reach the future… That giant carbon footprint is still out there as we use and abuse our ecosystem and continue our daily unconscious excesses… Did I tell you about the driver of a hybrid car who tossed a half lit cigarette out their car window? Hmmm.
PS. I’m thinking about Project 365 and might choose to Add a photograph each day with a word, caption, phrase, quote, poem or whatever... 😉 Will let you know.
