“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.”
RALPH WALDO EMERSON
It all comes down to either being influenced by your environment, or being in control of your environment.
Will you be perfect each time in that endeavor? I’m not, yet, but learning that even though I might be bested by insects, polluted air and water, and so forth, I can still lay my head down at night and be thankful.
Don’t ask me how or why…it just something that comes from within. And I like that; it makes me smile.
