Life, One Day at a Time...

The way we live our days, is the way we live our lives. - Annie Dillard

Goes a long way to show that time flies and we better have our priorities right. Also goes a long way to show we need to focus on the present.

Ones control for oneself is tough.
If that is achieved we are the winners - most of the time.

Absolutely true and inspirational :)

The right words that I needed to hear, Nimmy-Thanks, as usual for giving me that spark when I needed it... YET AGAIN!

Nimmy said...

Thanks a ton for leaving a comment, Hobo, Ashish and Bill! :-))

Hobo: Absolutely! But, alas, how tough it is! I've seriously been warning myself to control my temper. But it's not yet happening. I am going to continue to try as hard as I can..! Let's see...

Ashish: Glad to share such quotes! Anything to inspire my blog-friends! :-)

Bill: There really seems to be something going on here, eh? I am turning out to be a useful medium for passing on just the things that you are looking for..! That makes me feel really good!! :-))And, of course, I can't articulate how glad I am to see you back here! :-)

easier said than done.

but very nice to read that, and to find that i , and all of us know everything we need to do, its just the implementation that makes the difference !

Nimmy- Amazing, I feel the same inability to communicate my appreciation of who you are in my life- arbitrary guru, maybe even, muse?! Half a world away and you make a difference to this analyst, cartoonist, director! Thank You Nimmy!

Hey R.K! :-) I couldn't agree more with you. Easier said than done....indeed.

But if we try really hard, it may work. We take one step at a time...do something everyday and before we know it, we may have crossed half the ocean. For example, yesterday, I decided to do just what I wanted rather than while away time (happened to be a holiday due to the elections)...and I managed to somewhat please myself. I pulled out my water colours after a long time and painted - felt good. Completed a few pending tasks, and did some more things I've been meaning to. Now, I am thinking I just need to plan for every day and spend at least 30 minutes on something that matters a lot to me. A few weeks later, I would surely have gotten ahead with that the top few things that matter to me....but to start with, we need to prioritize and be sure of what we want to do in life.

Bill: Extremely absolutely totally happy to be able to make a difference! :-) Here's hoping that all of us bump into such 'arbitrary gurus' frequently and hear our wake-up calls loud and clear! :-))
