7 July 2020 — Reminiscing

Today I have been talking to some people my age who frequent the same cafe and we have been recalling Bristol how it used to be — ie how we remember it being when we were younger.

I have certainly come away feeling good because of the opportunity of remembering the past with others, although I did not know them at the time. LIVING IN THE PAST, is of course, NOT good but what is GOOD is to recall from where we have come and reflect on where we are now. The experiences of the past, as I am fond of saying, make us who we are in the present and how we act in any one moment creates our future. This applies also to the place in which we live. I have during my life lived many different places apart from Bristol, but Bristol is where I started my life and where I will end it. And it is good to remember the town as it was when I was young with people who remember that time as well.

However, The Point of Power is Now, NOT in the past, and it is good to remember that there is only ONE MOMENT and that moment is NOW and that what we do and how we act in that moment creates our future.

I will end this blog with the appropriate saying: LIFE IS HOW WE MAKE IT, SO MAKE IT GOOD.
