Les Miserables

Do you know one of the reasons why people get miserable with their lives? It’s because they have the habit of bringing their yesterday’s troubles to the newness of today. And as if that is not even enough, they save up some more of yesterday’s failures and store it in tomorrow’s mystery.

Today is enough. Try not to do the same mistake/s you did yesterday. Work with a smile, regardless of how crappy yesterday was. Stop overthinking, you are not helping yourself become and do better by creating the worst case scenarios in your head. Walk around — count the bricks on the pavement, look up on trees (or the jumbled electric wires between electric posts, if you’re in the city), watch the clouds move along with the earth’s spinning. There’s much in today to discover and help you go on with your daily life.

When Jesus came down here on earth to live and be among us, He saw this reality in our lives, that is why He said, “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matthew 6:25-27, 33-34, emphasis mine)
