I was sent this by a close friend and it brought tears of inspiration to my mind. We have so much power inside of us that unfortunately isn't being used.
I read a great book a few years ago called "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" and thought that for sure I would apply it to my world. Then I stepped back into my "reality" and totally forgot about it. What I wouldn't do to go back and apply it then.
I realize now that to truly apply these ways of living that were recommended in the book is extremely hard, yet relatively easy to do if you truly want it to happen. Similar to New Years resolutions - easy to say yet so hard to do, unless you can honestly say that it's that important.
It's truly unfortunate that it took this situation that I'm dealing with now to finally make the changes to "my world" that I should have done before, however to focus any energy on "shouda, woulda, coulda" is like flying a plane across the ocean with a leak in it's fuel tank that I knew about. Doesn't make sense. All I can do now is remember that the past is the past and it will never be changed. By focusing every ounce of energy on the here and now and not letting the past be an influence on me, my level of confidence will not be impacted and will help me get through this challenge. I WILL have the privilege of being with my wife Tasha and son Talyn until I pass on at the age of 100.
Have a great day!!
