I will count this day a separate life.
I will remember that those who have fewest regrets
are those who take each moment as it comes
for all that it is worth.

From the Book of Og Mandino: Mission Success (The Seeds of Success)
This quote from this favorite book is what I almost live by as my personal motto… (you see, it is also the tagline of this blogsite….)
This moment is all that we have, time is our companion, we are the maker of our life…
the choice on how we live it is within our power…
I will pause whenever I am feeling sorry for myself today,
and remember that this is the only day I have and I must play it to the fullest.
What my part may signify in the great whole,
I may not recognize,
but I am here to play it
and now is the time.

I will free myself today from slavery to clock and calendar.
Although I will plan this day in order to conserve my steps and energy,
I will begin to measure my life in deeds not years;
in thoughts, not seasons;
in feelings, not figures on a dial.

(Today Series: 7/22)
How do we measure our “time”? Are we living our day by “just getting by” or we see our day as “8-5” or just simply “whatever” or que-sera-sera? Time, for those who matters time, can really intimidates or frightens you or worry you… but however which way, we are “spending” it everytime… so how are we going to use and measure it matters!
I think we have can easure time by good deeds we’ve done, knowledge we’ve imparted, laughter we’ve blurted and love we’ve shown… and especially by the “time” we actually shared.
I will not fret the future.
My success and happiness does not depend on straining to see what lurks dimly on the horizon
but to do, this day,
what lies clearly at hand.

I will forget yesterday, with all its trials and tribulations, aggravations and setbacks, angers and frustrations.
The past is already a dream from which I can neither retrieve a single word nor erase any foolish deeds.
I will resolve, however, that if I have injured anyone yesterday through my thoughtlessness,
I will not let this day’s sun set before I make amends,
and nothing I do today will be of greater importance.

(“Today” series is featuring Og Mandino’s “Seeds of Success” from the book “Mission:Success”…
this is my sort of scroll of prayers I recite almost every morning, to guide me through the day!…
I want now to share this with you!)

God, I thank you for this day.
I know I have not accomplished as yet all you expect of me,
and if that is your reason for bathing me in the fresh dew of another dawn,
I am most grateful.
I am prepared, at last, to make you proud of me.

Today I will start my “Today” blog-series, featuring bits from Og Mandino’s “Seeds of Success” from the book “Mission:Success”…
this is my sort of scroll of prayers (with 20 resolutions and lots of appreciation for Today’s gift from God), this I recite almost every morning, and almost know by heart, this prayer guides me through my day (and life)!…
I want now to share this with you!
