Grievances

We all have grievances. For those that are unsolvable we have to let them go. To savour the present we have to let go of the past. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

Reflection

Our past reveals who we are and our ability to repeat our transgressions in the present. If we aren’t regretful and remorseful about our past there is no redemptive quality within us. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

Time

Now is the only time that is relevant. The past can inform. The future can be envisioned. The present is where the work is done. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

Let Go

We can’t dwell on the why’s, the if’s and the but’s. We have to let go of our past mistakes and shortsightedness, be present at all times in every decision we make or action we take, resolving to act intentionally and with loving kindness at all times. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

What do we do with the present moment which is not static? Are we consumed by our past or are we immersed in the present moment? Living in the present isn’t a gift that we leave unopened, it is a gift that we can use to transform our lives. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

Lead

We have to stop complaining and start being the leader in our lives. Our present situation depends on what we think, do, and believe in. The past is over. The present is all we have. The future may never come. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022

Mirroring our Lives

We have to look at ourselves in the mirror and minutely examen all of our facets. It is only by critically looking at where we have been, who we are in this moment, and how we want to transform ourselves in the future can we begin to change our lives, the lives of our fellow […]

Skills

We all have skills based on our experiences. Looking back we can see how our vision was obscured by our fear of failure. Our past is a lesson that needs to be applied to every situation that occurs in the present. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021

Living in the Now

Now is when we live our lives. There is no reversal to a time past or an assumption of a time in the future. This moment is all we have. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021
