Daily Reminder # 448

Well, it is another exquisitely beautiful post hurricane day. I feel kind of like I'm reaping the post hurricane blessings without having suffered any of the actual damage. We were lucky here, though there was flooding and loss of power not far from here. It's wonderfully cool and the air is clean and the sun is out. I hadn't realized quite how sunless this summer has been until I was at the back door yesterday. What a difference sunshine makes. Construction people will be here this afternoon, so I'm dividing yesterday's pictures into chipmunks & bunnies and birds. Today is chipmunk and bunny.... and a Neale Donald Walsh that I should read once a day since I am an extremely skilled  ( gifted even -if there were a Worry Olympics I could be in contention for a medal) worrier, having been trained in what I call The Basic Worry System since birth. Actually, reading it over, I think I might have posted it before, but I guess it can't be said often enough, so I'm going to leave it as is.

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know... 
...that it is well to avoid the tendency to catastrophize.

Stop worrying about all that could occur tomorrow.
You are getting agitated about things that haven't
happened yet...and may never happen. 

Stay here, right here, in this moment. What is going on
right now...what is occurring right here...? That is all
that matters. That is where your life is being lived.

Love, Your Friend....
