My Love to You

I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened. Mark Twain

Today I was thinking how much time we waste on worrying about things that don't go our way. We let worry take over our minds, hearts and bodies. We give it so much power, that in the end it controls us.

When consumed in this unproductive process (which worry is), we stop noticing what's going well in our lives. and believe me there is always something that's going the way you want. You're just too worried to notice it. It's your life and it is what you make of it. Take responsibility for everything that happens for you invited it deliberately or not. Own it.

Then I looked back at some of the moments in my life. And you know which ones I remember the most, almost as if they just happened, and I remember all the details? The ones when I was happy, when it was fun, when I felt loved, when I loved... And the moments that hurt seemed unreal, almost as if they never really happened.

Finally, I realized that in the end I'll only remember the good stuff. So why am I worrying about things that don't go the way I want? they will pass and I'll never even remember them.

We all worry every day about many things that we don't even think of in a few weeks or even days. So why worry? why make ourselves so consumed in it that we don't notice what goes right? Why focus on negative when there is positive that is waiting to be finally noticed?

So the mantra for today and ideally every day: When the road gets rough, just remember that it shall pass and you won't even think about it later on. Just accept it and get ready for better times.
And when you're happy don't worry that it will end, for you'll have such a bright memory of it that it will always be in your heart. So embrace it, enjoy it, and keep it in your heart.

Love you!

  1. Bravo, Sasha!

    We all are able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions (as long as we don't dwell). In fact, women are more resilient than men.

    When the sky is grey, I remind myself, the life is like a zebra: after black line the white one must follow. I also quote the Serenity Prayer.

    Inevitably, the Sun shines again!

    1. Yes, sweetie. It's funny you said that we women are more resilient. I agree, though men are good at covering their emotions up.
      Love ya
