Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.
If I had not thought about tomorrow or next week;
If I had not thought about next month, next year;
A winter long and bleak
If I had just thought about today
pushed Worry away
and Hope to one side;
If I had just listened with all my might
to what my body was trying to tell me;
The lessons this illness was trying to teach me,
the winter would not have been so long and bleak.
Brigitte Franssen 2016
The secret of health for body and mind is not to mourn for the past
nor to worry about the future but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
