Today and Tomorrow's Inspiration

I read this on my friend Tammy's blog and had to put it here for others to read. This is probably one of the best things I've ever heard. So much that I'm considering putting it in a digital scrapbook page and printing and framing it.

She doesn't know who wrote it, so I can't acknowledge the writer as well, but....

"Each of us must direct our own lives, chart our own course and make our own decisions, and what is best for me is probably constraining for you. We too often forget the fact that what most of us need is to be nurtured, not improved. An emphasis on improvement confirms our inadequacies, while nurturing affirms who we really are and who really loves us. Too often we try to help others by seeking solutions to their problems, or giving them our plan for personal improvement when what they need is love, understanding and acceptance.

Let us remember these two things: that personal joy comes from appreciating the present and that the greatest gift we give to others is a nurturing heart."

I think that if we all lived by what is said above that we would all be much more joyous and happier in our own personal lives.
