One At A Time....

Sometimes we find that there's really a lot of fears that we dreaded in the near future... fear of death, fear of stricken by a deadly disease, fear of an accident while driving, fear of our loved ones and even fear of  presentations and etc etc. Life seems so restlessness with all these worries and concerns which clouded our minds, especially if the fear comes true.  The list go on and on ....

The old fashioned but potent advice from various religions, motivational speakers or authors, psychologist or even the man on the street will probably tell you to live one day at a time. It's a phrase which everyone heard of, I'm sure, and it's still a very good advice to apply. In my opinion, worrying over the future for something that may or may not happened drained our resources for our daily chores and work. It also leads to unnecessary health problems, if prolong. After all, what worry can do to improve our plight? As a song (Don't worry, be Happy) goes...'Worry doubles your troubles'. It will only make us worse but on the other hand, feeling calm and in control may help us to face our fear or concerns better. Take a few deep breaths and slowly relax now. :)



I love this verse and that's also what inspired me to write this post - from Matthew 6:34 : Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

'Looking forward to a good weekend and wishing you a good weekend too!'

  7. The phrase... it comes from serenity prayer, is it not? This is one of my fav prayer...


    God grant me the serenity,

    to accept the things I cannot change;

    courage to change the things I can;

    and wisdom to know the difference.

    Living one day at a time;

    Enjoying one moment at a time;

    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

    Taking, as He did, this sinful world

    as it is, not as I would have it;

    Trusting that He will make all things right,

    If I surrender to His Will;

    That I may be reasonably happy in this life

    And supremely happy with Him

    Forever in the next.

  8. My hubby always remind me of this too! He's a very brave man. We fell for so many times and we still standing strong. Now, there's yet more to face under this kind of economy! No one knows what will happen after this? Maybe 2012!!!! Only GOD knows!
