With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today’s secret comes seasoned with an abundance of spices…..nutmeg (tights, flats), sage (skirt), cinnamon (blouse) and saffron (cardigan)!! Hopefully, a lively palette will help you swallow the message!
Part of learning how to worry less is the ability to live one day at a time. The past and the future hold enough troubles of their own…so let us live for today and make it the best day it can be. Again, I have learned this lesson the hard way and allowed worry as a young mother to consume me at times. But, when I practice just focusing on today, I am more joyful and at peace. Joy and peace are wrinkle zappers!!

Now, I recognize that some days we wake up with heavy issues on our plates. We are currently going through a family trial as I write this….but for today I will look at that trial as a challenge and an opportunity to help others who struggle in this difficult economy. Being mad or upset will not change the situation. But, possibly by thinking proactively, solutions to our situation can happen.
Also, if I take life one day at a time, I am more likely to stay on my diet and to exercise without talking myself out of it. I can diet just for today and I can exercise just for today….but thinking long term is sometimes discouraging!!
It is a choice every morning….choose for today to be your joyful best….tomorrow has enough troubles of its own.
Does anyone consciously focus on life one day at a time?
