Thinking of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Yes folks, I know the picture should have been of a Brunfelsia but could not find one. This predicament reminded me so of my late Dad who would not have it that these were called Marguerite s and not daisies. Oops, sorry Dad, while looking through my wonderful copy of "What Flower is That", I see that the botanical name is actually Chrysanthemum frutescens.
We learn something new every day.
Are you also #thinkingofyesterdaytodayandtomorrow? I know I am.
During this time of emotional turmoil, while the world seems to be spinning off its axis with the worry of the Covid19 virus, and all the lives affected by loss and hardship, it is hard not to think of the past, present and future.YESTERDAY
Many people think that it is not good to dwell on the past but we can learn so much from what has gone before.
We can right past wrongs.
- Apologize for misunderstandings
- Realize that although we made mistakes, we can learn lessons from them.
- Think back on the dreams we had for our future, and see how our ideas changed over the years.
- Did we allow our lives to get out of kilter?
- Sometimes we believed hype about how we look, and how we dress, what we own or don't own, made us who we are today.
- Did this allowed us to lose self-confidence?
- See how the world has changed since then, and how we changed with the ideas that we allowed into our lives. Where they good or bad?
- What were our core values? How have they changed?
- Where are the friends we held so dear? Are we still in touch?
We are living through a crisis which will affect each one of us in some way or the other.
Certainly, the way we live now, in lock down, will affect the way we see the natural world.
Make us aware of the importance of family and friends.
Realize that it is not things that makes us happy but the people we allow into our lives.
That we shall have to be more prudent with our finances in the future as the world goes through financial upheaval.
We shall, hopefully, put our affairs in order so that when the time of our demise comes, our family will not have more worries to deal with while in the throes of coping with loss.
Do you have a will in place?
Are you insured against death and dread disease? Make sure you know what your policies cover.
While you have the time, during lock down, you could use it to check on all these essential things which may have been on the back-burner for a while.
We know that many people have either lost their jobs or business, have reduced income or none at all. This is the time to speak to them of the wonderful opportunity of learning an online business. Wealthy Affiliate helped me to open my eyes to opportunities I never knew existed.
There must be thousands of people just like me all over this wonderful world of ours who could use the encouragement to join Wealthy Affiliate, and to take control of their future, and that of their family members.
Make contact with friends, and family, you may have neglected. Be concerned about their welfare. Everyone likes to know they are cared about.
Plan for the future you really want. Is there something you have always wanted to do?
Make this an exciting time of living in the present, enjoy being with your family, but also looking forward to new experiences.TOMORROW
After living through this time, we are sure to value each moment of every day.
Certainly, there will be challenges.
We will have lived through the greatest challenge I hope we shall ever have, and hopefully come through with so many plans, and ambitions for happiness in the future
Hopefully, it won't be long before we are able to walk in a forest (without a mask).
Be free to visit family and friends.
When I listen to the radio in the morning and hear the things people are missing, the thing that comes up most often is human contact.
To be able to see a smile on another face isn't easy to see when wearing a mask.
We have amazing times ahead of us.
Being able to hug your loved ones is more important than one can imagine.PLEASE SHARE WHAT YOU HAVE PLANNED FOR YOUR TOMORROWS?
