Thought for the day
Posted at 21:02:43 by Jacky Leonard
Yesterday is history, tomorrow's a mystery, today is a gift. Unwrap it with excited anticipation and enjoy every second.
My thought for today is about being present. Living in the here and now. I'm not suggesting for one minute you don't review your past and learn from it, or plan for your future and work towards it. What I'm recommending is you don't live in either of those places.
It's easy to get caught up in worrying about past events, but the reality is they're gone. Re-running them throught your head like an old movie doesn't solve anything. By all means review and learn from your mistakes...it's a natural part of the development process, but then leave the past behind.
I'm a planner, I like to be in control of what happens next...even if in reality it's just an illusion of control. However, I've learned living in the future is a little unfulfilling...and worrying about it isn't very constructive either.
Your time is now! Live every 86400 seconds gratefully, passionately and purposefully.
