Each day we can wake up and choose to see life as a gift and to be
fully present in that day. We cannot always control the outcome,
but we can control our reactions. Each day we can bring all we have
to that day, choosing to live it fully, seeing it as a great gift. Each day
we can train our mind not to obsess on regret, nor to worry for tomorrow
but to be in this present moment. Each day we can be grateful for
what has happened that day. And we can choose not to judge our lives
from moment to moment (am I happy, successful, unhappy,
a failure, good, bad) but simply to live our life.
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you
as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens
to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
John H. Miller
