52 Weeks of 2013 - Week 18

Something as small and insignificant as a grain of sand, if left long enough can end up derailing us. It can be the same in our lives. We need to take care of the little problems, the niggles, the doubts, the frustrations, as they arise. How else will we be able to handle the larger battles we may face?

Don't ignore the little things, don't allow them to build up. Don't save up all the minor grievances, don't be a martyr...until you reach exploding point and those around you (most often those you love the most) are left wondering what on earth just happened.

If we can intentionally start each day afresh, with a clean slate, without yesterday's, or last week's, or even the baggage from decades ago weighing us down, just think how much more could be accomplished. Choosing to be happy with where you are now, often means choosing to not be stuck in the past.

Choose to move on, to forgive, whether it be another person, or maybe yourself, to not regret. You cannot change what has already happened but you can face what is ahead of you unencumbered. There is power in the choices we make, on a daily basis, let's make the right ones!
