Feelin' Better Already

So I'm in a mood. Yeah, yeah, you've heard that before.

Actually, I'm not a moody person. I have an attitude, that's true. But for the most part, I take every day for what it is... a once in a lifetime experience. There are days though, for no particular reason, that just get me... well, a little pissy.

Sometimes, like today, there are no real reasons other than I want to be somewhere else, doing something else, other than sitting here in my living room. It's not real unhappiness, it's more like today wasn't all it could be, and I have not made much of it. And that bothers me.

I have seen, like everyone else, too many friends and family members lost or taken ill, and having their lives forever changed or taken from them. This week on FB alone, there have been friends thinking about their moms, school friends, brothers and sisters, who are gone. Just tonight one asked for prayers for a forever friend. Here's my point.

We don't know what tomorrow brings, all we know is tomorrow means we have one less day on this earth. Don't waste it. Look around you, if this life is not what you want it to be, start to change it. Things won't happen overnight, but you have to envision it, then do it. Baby steps if you need to, boldly if you dare.

Not much I can imagine as more true than the sentence "The only regrets I have are the things I didn't do."

Tomorrow is promised to no one. Take a chance on today.



  1. I'm in complete agreement. "See who you want to be & work towards it" has kind of ended up being my personal mindset for the last few months. It's not always easy and sometimes the old habits get in the way but it's what I'm going for.

    1. I love that Vinny. It might not be completely clear, but thinking positive has got to work better than complaining about your life. Make the most of every minute.
