Be The Change

be the change you want to see happen in the world, begin with living the golden rule. Mercia Tapping

I hear a lot of complaining nowadays about the sad state of affairs in the world and the despair that people feel that it will over get better. There is no doubt that the world has more than its fair share of people who are cruel, hungry for power, and hate those who are different than themselves.

But if we give up on the world, give up on ourselves, then the worst will come true. Maybe we are not in the position or have the temperament to change the world, but never forget that change starts with one person at a time until it becomes a groundswell.

The Real Success

Filed in Courage, Hope, Inspirational, Life, Love by on October 30, 2016

the real success is whether you have lived and loved with no regrets. Mercia Tapping

Ending life with major regrets which start with ” If Only….” Is to my mind a very sad state of affairs. I certainly witnessed it with my mother, a prisoner of her generation who made sure I was educated and had more choices. So I have lived and loved with great passion. Yes I have lost a great deal too, but I have lived full out and tried to love my fellow humans along the way. I believe that is the best you can do.

Remember You Can Only Live

remember you can only live this year once. there are no reruns. Mercia Tapping

I think it is important as we go through life to do it mindfully; be conscious of the way we conduct ourselves and treat others as go about our daily lives. If you do this, then you will never look back with major regrets. There are no do-overs. Each day does not come around again. Sometimes I have to give myself a big shake in the morning to remind myself of this.

No Time To Waste

no time to waste, time to feel alive again. Mercia Tapping

If there is anything I really regret in life it is when I have an “off” day where I neither do anything pleasurable or productive. At my age, I am acutely aware that this is wasting life which is a limited commodity. Feeling alive, after perhaps a dark passage in your life, is not necessarily a spontaneous “woo hoo” as you leap out of bed enthusiastically in the morning.

For me, and I do feel very much alive, it has been a slow process of building blocks and a mindful practice of looking at all the good things in my life each morning at breakfast. I hope you feel alive and welcome life each day.

Forget Bad Decisions

forget bad decisions made in the past, concentrate on the decisions you can make today. Mercia Tapping

We can kick ourselves for things we did in the past that we would never repeat. Okay we learned from that one. But the important question is what decisions do you choose to make with your life now? And for that we are all responsible.

It is Never Too Late

it is never too late to sing a new song in your life. Mercia Tapping

I see too many people resign themselves to the status quo, with life becoming a dreary trudge, with one day drifting into the next. What a waste! Never think it is too late for you, and your life is over. Find that new song and sing it out aloud with all your might.

Your Current Situation

your current situation is not your stopping point, merely a way station in your journey. Mercia Tapping

Take comfort that there is always more to come and good days lie just around the corner. That way you can congratulate yourself for how far you have come, and know that even better lies ahead.

But it happened anyway. And now there is a choice to be made. Fighting to get your life back on track again is highly recommended. Today is a new start to a new week.

The Value Of A Life

Filed in Friends, Inspirational, Joy, Life by on October 22, 2016

the value of a life is the number of lives it touches. Mercia Tapping

When all is said and done at the end of the day, as we review our lives, what has really been important? It is neither fame or fortune, although a lucky few might have achieved both. No, it is how many lives you touched in a positive way, and the ripple effect it had on others. That is in the end how you will be judged. So think about touching someone’s life today and bring joy into it.
