PostHeaderIcon CROSS THAT BRIDGE. WHEN YOU GET THERE

Life’s travels take us down many roads. Some roads are paved; others not. Arriving to our destination is the objective. Hills, valleys, and bridges we encounter.
To “Cross that bridge when you get there” means to not worry about a possible future problem, but deal with it when and if it occurs.
Why worry about issues that don’t exist or haven’t happened?
They may not occur.
One of our childhood rhymes was, “Weight brought the bridge down.”
Stress and worry produce weighty consequences. They can become “heavy” burdens placed on our shoulders; problems that we carry around.
Anxieties and sleepless nights follow. Enjoy the moment!
Reasonably, prepare for tomorrow; live for today! Deal with problems when they occur.
The scriptures in Matthew 6:34 tells us: “Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries.
Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Can I get a witness?

PostHeaderIcon A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT

By Vernalee
imageThe phrase “A day late and a dollar short” generally means that someone has both missed an opportunity and been inexcusably unprepared for it. A briefer translation of this saying could be “too late and too little.” It can also refer to an unfavorable review of a person’s efforts as poorly timed and too inadequate to make any improvements to a given outcome.
Some folks say it’s never too late, but in all reality … that’s simply is not true.
It’s dangerous to procrastinate assuming that the opportunity will reappear. It is imperative that we “make hay while the sun is shining.”
We should stand prepared to avail ourselves of today’s opportunities. Tomorrow may be too late. A catchy phrase, Terri McMillian wrote a book turned movie featuring it as a title. Though Johnny Mathis’ and Denise Williams’ harmonious collaboration on “Too Much, too little, too late” is one of my favorite tunes, the saying is not. The downward slide is precisely what happens in misguided relationships, both personal and professional; on misdirected career and entrepreneurial pursuits; and in various aspects of failed opportunities in life when we are “a day late and a dollar short!” A day and a dollar are not appreciable amounts of time or money, but if your timing is off or late, the amount or hour don’t matter; you fell “short.” The bottom line is the outcome … which your shortcomings though diminutive may eventually cost you an amount greater than great!

PostHeaderIcon “Every dog has its day!”

“Your time will come; you will eventually come into your own.” Destiny, luck, training, education, generational wisdom, preparation, planning … in addition to a few other factors will determine where we land. Eventually, everyone can succeed at something! That is what we optimists believe, think, and feel. Sure, there will be those individuals who do not wish you well; those who are filled with envy, jealousy, and spite. Relegate them to a place that is out of sight; out of mind. Negative energies have no place in your life! Since the days of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, we have heard the popular phrase, “Every dog has its day.” Keep an open mind and with positive reinforcement, you may take hold of another saying, “Success bequeaths us all.” You may eventually become the cat’s meow and you might be “cooler than the summer breeze,” but nothing barks louder than success! It takes time, but remember this – “Every dog has its day and a good dog has two!”
