There are people who lives in their past.. they lives in their regret, wishing they could go back and undo whatever happened. It is not wrong to remember your past.. good or bad memories.. past is past.. cherish the happy memory.. how about the ugly one..the one you don’t want to remember but seems to appear on your mind. Sadly we can’t change our past .. let it be your experience.. or a lesson to remember..so it won’t happened again in the future. Don’t let your past burden you.. and make you sleepless night.. or take ambien to make you sleep.. just relax.
Today is today.. embrace your day with happiness and gratitude. Being alive today, breathing properly, smell the fresh air.. just be happy for that simple little things you enjoy each day. Celebrate your present day, embrace every moment.. if its not a really good day..just move on..pass that day with no regret, just remember things happened for a reason. Do the best today because what you did today reflect where you will be tomorrow.
Wish for a brighter tomorrow but then again.. what you plan sometimes doesn’t goes exactly as planned. Keep on dreaming and visualizing what you want in the future, do proper planning, act on it and hopefully you will achieve whatever you want. Create many options and plan in case one plan fail, you can other backup plan. We can’t predict what tomorrow bring .. we can only wish, hope and pray for better tomorrow.
Past is our teacher, today is our friend and tomorrow is a stranger.
I often read articles and tips about budgeting.. its all about saving for the future. The expert says save more money for the future and spend less today… I would love save more if i could but if i do that.. i couldn’t spend much today. Everything is money today, you go to any toilet in a shopping mall ..you will be charged 20-30 cents per entry… even a glass of plain water cost 30 cent. I do not shop for clothes unless there is a sale going on or unless it is really necessary.
Buying groceries usually once or twice in two months.. even less items cost more money. What else?..bills..bills..and lots of bills… from basic needs.. water, electricity, home mortgage..and other necessity.. Astro and internet line (simple excuses for having this.. latest information). Not forgetting children needs.. school fees, tuition, books.. and other activity.
No doubt we need to save money for the future and enjoy the investment later on.. but we also need to enjoy our money today..just a balance of enjoying our present and future. If we are too obsess about controlling and budgeting today for the sake of tomorrow.. how could you enjoy today.. and if you reached ‘tomorrow’.. you have wasted yesterday.
There are people who work hard and they don’t even have much time to be with their little kids.. their excuses are.. getting money for our children when they grow up.. but what about now? …the time when they are still little and need attention?
I say.. enjoy our life the fullest.. we can plan about anything in the future..but God have their own plan.. and we don’t know what and when. Enjoy life.. embrace today with happiness.. and spend wisely. Be creative in everything.. if you thought bringing your kids to a shopping mall will make you spend more and you will end up feeding them unhealthy but fast food.. change it once a while.. bring them to the beach.. picnic.. bring your own sandwich..bring your traveler guitar.. sing along with them.. wouldn’t that be great? Life are meant to be cherished.
Save appropriately.. spend wisely and enjoy life greatly!
