"Yesterday's history. Tomorrow's a mystery. Today's a gift, that's why they call it the present". – Mike Ditka
A friend of mine asked me this morning, "How can I live my life like you? You are always so happy and nothing seems to get you down for long."
I laughed. "I get down sometimes. I just don't let it keep me down."
I gave her the same advice I am going to give you. Live for today. I know it sounds easier said than done but it is really that simple. Don't get hung on up what happened yesterday or what will happen tomorrow. Live for today.
Let me ask you a question. What would you do today if you knew that tomorrow you were going to be dead. Would you worry about what the neighbors thought? Would you care what your co-worker said to you yesterday? Would you cry into your hands because the man/woman you have a crush on didn't return your feelings? What would you do?
I know what I would do. I'd live my life for today and project as much love and kindness as humanly possible. I'd smile at everyone I met and would help everyone I could. I'd be genuine to everyone and look at the world with wonder.
It's all in your perspective. Each day is a miracle and the universe is filled with beautiful things. You only have to look around to see. The sun came up this morning. The trees provide us with the air our bodies need to function.
Each of us is unique and beautiful. Each of us is filled with the Light. Don't dampen the Light by worrying about yesterday or tomorrow. Instead, relish in today and shine brightly!
