Time wasting, inner peace, and the things you can’t change

“Let me remember that the impact of criticism is often not the intent of the critic, but when the intent is evil, that’s what the block button’s for. And when I eat my critique, let me be able to separate the good advice from the bitter herbs.”

A friend upon seeing me stress out because of drama brought about my unchangable people sent me the video below. It made me think.

There are things that can’t be changed. Past mistakes, people. Why do I spend so much time trying to change them? From now on I am going to leave them messed up and work on the other things. The things that can be shaped into good things and into better things. I know what I do is sometimes worthwhile, and that when I make mistakes good will come of them. I’m not the best, I’m not the smartest, I’m not the most qualified, but that’s fine with me.

“There’s no need to sharpen my pencils anymore, my pencils are sharp enough. Even the dull ones will make a mark”

Tomorrow is a new day with new possibilities, yesterday is history, and the present is about to become the past. I don’t have a time machine. I have to wait for tomorrow, and let the past stay where it belongs. Who’s with me?

  1. Some wise words there…We should never let a good day be ruined by a bad yesterday. When it comes to criticism I’m with Elbert Hubbard when he said, “To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing and be nothing.”
