As you are reading this I am off on celebration. Not a quiet one, but boisterous and joyful as it should be on a day like this.
This is a shot I made during recent trip. It is early in the morning, not too long after sunrise.
Be Here Now
Be here NOW.
You cannot change yesterday, no matter how much you try. Thinking of past mistakes or hurts robs you of living in the present. Even fond memories of good times are thieves of the moment, taking from present life, so don’t dwell there long. The past is no place to live, it’s landscape is barren of possibilities.
Before you answer consider this:
Most of you have seen the Daffy Duck cartoon where he finds a ton of gold in a cave and wants it all. He’s screaming “mine! mine! mine! go! go! go! it’s all mine!” He has more gold than he can possibly use, yet, he won’t share. His limitless supply to him seems to have limits. He won’t share the opportunity for better things with anyone, his only focus being lack, need, and want. This is the competitive spirit. And we all know how it worked out for the Duck! The competitive spirit is only concerned with getting theirs, or, “I’ll get them before they get me.” The competitive spirit creates opportunity only for themselves.
