THIS IS ON MY MIND – The light at the end of the tunnel keeps moving farther away.  But what gives me hope is that common sense is coming back into “vogue”.  I keep reading inspirational stuff and realized that I am getting numb to a lot of it. And where is common sense?  Where are my friends’ common sense? IT’S THERE!  Alive and well tho’ lying dormant.  Hey, Guys, Macron can only do so much.  Biden can only do so much. So STOP COMPLAINING and use your common sense. 

And my road is paved with good intentions.  WELL, my common sense tells me that I must dig deeper to find it within myself to go farther.  I can only imagine what my father faced in his day.  And his mother.  And his brothers and sisters.  I am such a wimp. 

This worked last week:

“Barely the day started and… it’s already six in the evening.

Barely arrived on Monday and it’s already Friday.

… and the month is already over.

… and the year is almost over.

… and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed.

… and we realize that we lost our parents, friends.

and we realize it’s too late to go back…

So… Let’s try, despite everything, to enjoy the remaining time…

Let’s keep looking for activities that we like…

Let’s put some color in our grey…

Let’s smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts.

And despite everything, we must continue to enjoy with serenity this time we have left. Let’s try to eliminate the after’s…

I’m doing it after…

I’ll say after…

I’ll think about it after…

We leave everything for later like ′′ after ′′ is ours.

Because what we don’t understand is that:

Afterwards, the coffee gets cold…

afterwards, priorities change…

Afterwards, the charm is broken…

afterwards, health passes…

Afterwards, the kids grow up…

Afterwards parents get old…

Afterwards, promises are forgotten…

afterwards, the day becomes the night…

afterwards life ends…

And then it’s often too late….

So… Let’s leave nothing for later…

Because still waiting see you later, we can lose the best moments,

the best experiences,

best friends,

the best family…

The day is today… The moment is now…

We are no longer at the age where we can afford to postpone what needs to be done right away.

Or maybe you’ll leave it for… ′′ later “…

I like what it says.  Except, I am not a procrastinator.  I usually take action.  Usually.   (sigh).   What is really on my mind is that I am disgusted.  What has happened to common sense?  People that I thought had/have common sense don’t seem to be using it.   Well, they don’t have common sense according to what seems obvious to me.   I get very discouraged.  I want that light at the end of the tunnel to be around the corner and it is not!!  My fellow blogger uses a wonderful word “lassitude”. It means weariness and/or being tired of.  So, what do I do?  Take a shower?

Yesterday, I took a walk.  Today, it is Palm Sunday. Time in Europe changed this weekend.  I thought I was better.  Now, I feel worse.  Well, I am better.  And, if I take action, what action do I take?  Lots of questions without answers.  Meanwhile……

I have some new affirmations for my birthday on Tuesday (March 30th)  But the one I am going with today and especially on Tuesday and after that.

            EVERY DAY IS A NEW BEGINNING.  The 3 days of Easter.  Then, go for it!!  A new future.  Use your common sense! 

Peace.  JAY
