Senior Productive Living for Today
Into the middle of August, still hot, drought deepens, weather continues to be top news, along with hot politics, vacations ending, school about to resume, autumn awaits, storms brew in some quarters. Such are the conditions as we approach the ninth month of the year.
Many wonder what awaits. Some fret over the possible outcome. Some pray for a particular conclusion. Others shake their heads in confusion and depression. Who is telling it “like it is?” Who is setting us up for radical and threatening changes that may hold frightening prospects?
A few suggestions:
Let not the current tide of events sweep you up in their stormy pounding of the shore.
Let today be better than yesterday and tomorrow be an improvement upon both.
Let world events play themselves out. While there may be little we can do, whatever we can do will be our contribution. Make it count.
Find reasons to make everyday a time of spiritual maturing. Don’t wait for miracles.
Expect that whatever life offers it will be a gift. Receive the gift.
Offer to others a moment of personal enrichment. Tell them how precious they are.
Permit your own time of quiet serenity to be your gift to your self. Let it absorb you.
Look for the unexpected coming your way offering you the benefit of another of life’s lessons.
Seek out someone needing your presence in their lives. Give them a positive boost and an uplifting message of strength to make their day.
Be the reward others seek by your being a part of their lives.
