Starting Today


Today I’m feeling like I did every year on the last day of school.   It’s the end of this month’s Heart to Heart series, and there are so many things left to say.  

I wanted to encourage you not to give up on your New Year’s Resolutions, and remind you that it’s never too late to start over.   

I wanted to ask you if you’ve noticed how women sometimes treat each other like the enemy and to share my thoughts on why I think that is.

And I wanted to apologize for not being here for our heart to heart last week.

But, as this series comes to an end, I can rest easy knowing I’m leaving you in the capable hands of our contributor Laura from Inspiration for Moms.   Today, she is sharing an inspirational quote to encourage us when we’re carrying around regrets, doubts or disappointments.  

They’re all yours, Laura.


Sometimes life can be very disappointing.  It will sneak up when you least expect it.

That’s what happened to me last weekend and in return, I had a hard time all last week.  I tried to not focus on it. I tried to redirect my energy to more positive thoughts.  But the disappointment was still lingering.

After a few days of reflecting, I realized that I’m letting the past dictate my future.  And that was just crazy! It was time for a change.

I felt this quote was exactly what I needed to remind me that the future is full of unknown beauty.  I don’t want to drag my past disappointment around with me anymore.  I am going to enjoy the blessings of today and look forward to the future!

Thank you, Laura, for those wise words.  And I’m sorry you had a rough week last week.

That quote reminds me of one of my favorite verses in the Bible, “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23.


See you in class,

  1. Oh…I needed that quote today! Thank you! 😉

  2. Gal, One thing that is the hardest to remember is that we are HUMAN! We are NOT SUPER human. We push ourselves beyond our endurance and then wonder why we are at our breaking points. My brother is 70 and working 80 hrs a week starting a new business. Forgets to eat..and is becomming dizzy and wonders why!
    Sometimes, we actually think we can do t he things our head tells you … can. ah no. You might get it done, but at a cost… Being realistic by realizing how much these demands we can actually handle. Maybe we can still do them, but maybe a little each day rather than one super human day. It’s ok to be human…in fact we can recognize it in others, just not in ourselves

  3. Sharon what a great quote, thanks for sharing.


  4. You are SO right, Patt. The older I get, the more I realize that I am not physically capable of those “super human” days that I use to pull of when I was younger. I’m learning to accept it, but it’s not easy.

  5. I’m so glad that the quote was helpful to you, Donnamae. That makes me very happy.

  6. Truer words have never been spoken! I love the quote too Sharon. Enjoy your week. XO

  7. Janice Sosh says:

    Thank you sooo much for sharing. I needed this quote also. I’m going to print it out and hang it on my refrigerator. We cannot live in the past, only in the present, and pray for the future. God bless everyone.
