Today is the only day you have to make a difference. The past has passed. The future never comes – it only dwells between your ears. Now is the time to take action. It is truly all you really have – this day; this moment.
Some choose to live in the past. Past glories. Past hurts. Past relationships. It’s gone. It’s over. It is no longer. For sure, it is great to remember the past and learn from it. But you cannot live there, try as you might. If you try to remain in the past, you will become irrelevant, tired, and discouraged. Living in the past is based in the fear and avoidance of now. The past is not real and doesn’t exist. Many try to remain in the past by living a Xerox life. The same – over and over and over and over. How boring. How mundane. How wasteful. You can break free today!
At times we also try to push into the future. That scary and dreamy place of wispy uncertainty. It is great to use our creative mind to consider long term possibilities. Imagining and declaring amazing outcomes can stimulate wonderful plans and projects. There is a warning!!! Why would you link your satisfaction, happiness, success, and joy to some future that may never arrive? You, my friend, can be satisfied, happy, successful and joyful today; right now. It is always a choice. I challenge you to visit your future today, and pull something from it into your present reality that you can do now.
The message is simple. The only certainty you have is today. Be there. Take it all in. Every conversation. Every opportunity. Every tear, every smile, every breath, every morsel of food and sip of water. Every person you meet. Savor each experience. Seize the moment. Love, live, and laugh – today!! Exercise. Stretch. Breathe deeply. Paint a picture. Sing a song. Dance a dance. Tell a story. Write a book. Climb a mountain. Hold a baby. Shake a hand. Hug a neck. Listen a little longer. Serve someone. Offer a new service. Ask a new question. Go for it! Say yes. Give it a try. Instead of asking “Why?”, ask “Why not!” There is great abundance and prosperity available to you in the gift today. One day at a time. It is the only way to live life…… to the fullest.
