Today’s not yesterday and it’s also not tomorrow, even though it seems we spend part of each day dwelling on those past and potential future events.
Perhaps it may be wise to live more in the ‘right now’ of things where we can and do effect, potentially many, of the events shaping our everyday lives.
“When all is said and done
what today we have begun
is the single thing
that tomorrow brings
through yesterday’s recall
those memories from us all.”~Plh

With much affection,
I wish you well.
Yesterday’s merely today in the making.
Tomorrows are filled with dreams but awaking.
Holding fast is your soul, the key to your life.
Holding fast is your heart with love shining bright.
Holding fast is your mind and all that you see.
Be ALL you can be.
“Yesterday is many things, a memory, a part of our journey, a learned lesson.
But the one thing it should never be … forgotten!” ~ Penny
The technology of today is exciting, and no doubt it will be even more exciting tomorrow.
But today I’d like to briefly mention the very transitory period of time in which we (you and I) will be here. So to what purpose do we allow inundation of newness? It is one thing to improve communication and other technological marvels, quite another to become so immersed within it, that the focus of reality is pitched into virtuality and the next “new thing”.
And I might add at considerable expense in terms of quality of life in our “real world” (you know the one removed from artificial things – if that’s even possible). Health, relationships, values, ecology, life on this planet – all these and more are taking a beating here.
The future looks good only if we do pay attention to the wisdom of yesterday. Lots of beautiful quotes out there in multimedia land, wise words from the past, but again to what purpose if they’re just pretty words reflected upon in the moment.
Turn off your electronic devices for a portion of each day. Focus on things happening in your immediate vicinity.
See … really see … your today, unfettered by online influences. Decide how you can change your life and others for the better.
Your today will soon be yesterday, and we don’t want it to be forgotten!
With much affection to you,
I really like this song (oldie). The song is great and the singer is just too, too cool or perhaps I should say hot, Ya’ gotta’ love the ‘tude! It’s huge! I hope you enjoy this blast from the past!
Hope your Thursday is/was a good one and that your Friday is even better!
Quotes are wonderful things. They remind us of … well … who we are; how we’d like to be and feel, or how we are feeling in the moment.
A favorite quote of mine is:
“Life is too short to start yourself with broken pieces of yesterday,
it will definitely destroy your wonderful today
and ruin your great tomorrow” ~ Unknown Author
So, having said that, this Monday morning here in the Northwestern section of America, I wish you the happiest memories from your yesterdays, the greatest successes in your todays and blessings and well wishes for all your tomorrows.
“We may not be able to change our yesterday, but we can be stronger, braver in our todays, beginning by feeling good about ourselves and then sharing and caring with others!” ~ Penny L Howe, 2014
Have a most excellent week ahead,
“As you lay sleeping,
tonight prepares for tomorrow
~ so you can make the most of it!
When you wake up,
your task ~
to ensure this happens!”

Thanks for stopping by,
The road you are traveling should always be today’s road.
Yesterday is gone and tomorrow we are shaping as we go forward.
“Leave regrets in yesterday,
or you will find yourself on a road
with no tomorrow to look forward to!”
