HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THIS TIRED?


DON'T WORRY. TOMORROW IS FRIDAY!

(From who else, but Jerry)

The Riddle of Here. Again this is a spirit video. It may ask you to join - but it is free. Do it only if you want to see videos that life your spirits and soul!

What is it about - talks about an everlasting joy that you will never lose - the here and now. We are always looking for something. We think it is complicated but it is easy. We look everywhere but in the here and not. We look to when - to then - but not now.

And don't get me wrong - I do it too. But I have the answer and I just decide every day to try again. I have the Lord today, my family today, my life today - I can't worry about what happened yesterday, but I do at times. And I sometimes fret about tomorrow - but how do I know it is mine? Maybe this is so important to me because sometimes I feel I am so close to this place - and then I lose it! Are you in the now?

I want to enjoy the N O W !

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

As a matter of fact, I think there've been a couple of times I've been even more tired than that ;-)

Brenda @ It's A Beautiful Life said...

He looks quite comfy hanging there... and yes I have felt that weary some times... as Lisa says, maybe even more tired than that a few times too.

Thankfully, joy is a strengthening agent so I try to walk in His joy every day... laugh lots too!

Sandra said...

love the draped cat shot, and sometimes i feel just that way but not that pretty of course. i do fret about the future and think about the past, but not as much as i used to. i try to live the now, and much of the time I do.. but my personality is the What If kind, so i fight that daily

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Remington said...

Desiree said...

I certainly try to live in the present moment, even though I do not always succeed ;)

Journeyin' Lady... said...

Love your "Quote of the Week" and also E. Hemingway quote!
If only we could all live in joy everyday!

Dragonfly Treasure said...

*hugs*Deb

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Cute photo! I have felt that way, the other day it hit me as I was driving home from shopping. Not a good thing! I managed to stay awake somehow. But oh did I want to just pull over and take a nap!

I don't think about the past as often as I once did. And I do wonder about the future sometimes as in health issues or the state of the world. But I also know Who holds the future!

Have a wonderful day!

I love Fridays! And yes, in fact, I have felt that tired. Enjoy the NOW! Great words!

Have a lovely evening my friend.

Ginny said...

As the quote goes, "If only we'd stop trying to be happy, we'd have a pretty good time". This very moment is all we can be assured of, why waste it thinking about before or after. We miss the very essence of life this way.

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

Oh, yes I have. Someone took a picture of me at my daughters wedding reception and I looked like that cat. I had cooked all the food, decorated the enitre yard and had manicured all 7 garden areas,plus the big white tent and hadn't had time to chage into my "pretty" clothes before guests started arriving. whewwww

Debbie said...

Yep. I've been that tired. And just like the cat, it's usually because I have gone and put myself out on a limb.

Pretty good... huh?

And I'm like you in that I tend to fret about yesterday and worry about tomorrow. I'm even worse, I don't always enjoy today.

Wanda's Wings said...

I feel like your little friend hang in the tree. Yes the weekend is coming. May we all refresh and be blessed.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Yes I have been that tired before...lol. hugs, Linda

Crystal Mary said...

Yes my dear friend, we can only life for the present, today.. I need to remember that also. I am that lion..resting in the tree, love that picture. xxxx to you friend. xxxx

DeanO said...

I'm tired just thinking about going into work tomorrow - 3x12 hour shifts. Closed the pool today so I'm ready for bed...I'm with the big cat...sleepy

SweetMarie said...

I felt like that today actually, but didn't look that good! lol!
I try to live for today, but I've always battled my worries of yesterday and tomorrow. That's why I love reading your blog, it's so positive and reminds me to stop and appreciate the moment. A habit I have is writing down quotes or poems that I like on a 8x10 piece of paper and I tape it to the wall as your walking into the kitchen for everyone to read. :)

Flora said...

oh yes... I feel like that CAT!

Walking on Sunshine... said...

Yes, I'm learning to just slow down and enjoy now. With my daughter in college this year I realized I rushed through everything. I want to enjoy the now and worry about tomorrow, well I know I'll still worry, but at least I'll enjoy life!

And yes, I have been that tired!!!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...

Usually, I try very hard to live in the now.

When I get mad, I let the steam out, and then I feel better. I do not like to stay mad for long.

Take care and have a wonderful Friday. Susan

Appointment! 'Just concluded an important-but-rough day ...so i'm bookmarking this for the weekend.

Probably my biggest struggle, living in the "now" and not fretting over should'ves, could'ves ... or what might happen tomorrow.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Sometimes it is easier said than done,, but try ,, try,, try again
love

FishHawk said...

Thanks again!

Ann said...

Yes, as a matter of fact I have been that tired before :)

silverthoughts2 said...

I think one of the reasons it's so hard to live in the NOW is because every time we turn around we are being told that we have to plan for the future, to be ready for the future, etc. so whatever we're doing there's always that little voice in the back of your head reminding you that what you are doing right that second is going to affect what happens tomorrow.

Sharon said...

Working on living in the NOW. I believe it's what God calls us to do. We are given daily bread...DAILY!

Not yesterday, that is a cancelled check. Not tomorrow, that is a promissory note. But NOW - that is hard, cold cash, my friend!!
