The 12/08/13 Joy Jar

8 Dec

Moi is winding down the ‘Joy Jar’ exercise. The ‘Joy Jar’ will officially end on Christmas Day. After the Mayan Calendar thingie went up in smoke, moi looked the idea of finding something to be grateful for every day. People who are grateful are hopeful and look forward to the future. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is looking toward a wonderful future.

The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.
Winston Churchill

The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
Oscar Wilde

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
William Shakespeare

Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
Steve Jobs

If we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost the future.
Winston Churchill

The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.
Albert Ellis

Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny.
Bob Marley

I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.

Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.
Jim Rohn

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
Malcolm X

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
Wayne Dyer

The future starts today, not tomorrow.
Pope John Paul II

Study the past, if you would divine the future.

Marcus Aurelius
