Monday Mottoes – #52

imagesAll it takes is for something to go wrong—the health, the career, the relationship. Suddenly, you’re thankful for what you had, or what you still have.

Or, nothing goes wrong, and you’re so grateful for smooth sailing. To not be facing any immediate oppression is a blessing indeed. No projects derailed at work, no deadly diagnoses from the doctor, no bankruptcies nor foreclosures in the financial realm. No kids gone astray, no messed-up mates, no yesterday-is-history-tomorrow-is-a-mystery-but-today-is-a-gift-that-is-why-it-is-called-the-present-145797extended family squabbles. Just peace, sweet peace.

Which brings us to today’s motto:

“The past is history. The future, a mystery. The here and now is a gift. That is why it’s giftcalled the present.” ~Unknown

A present, a gift, a cause for celebration. No matter how your day/ week/ month is going, consider it a gift. This changes everything—attitude, perspective, focus.

Consider today your personal present and use it wisely. Happy Monday, everyone!
