It is really hard sometimes to live just for today, but you and I know, we would be so much better off if we did. We came into this world with nothing and when we are gone, we will take nothing with us. If you really think about it…..we only have today for all we know. We bring into our world a lot of unnecessary worry because we think too much about tomorrow, which really never comes.
If we live the way we should today, exercise our faith, hope, peace, goodwill and strong ethics, tomorrow will be take care of itself. We must have faith that things that come into our life are simply to make us stronger.
“Today is life – the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.” ≈ Dwight D. Eisenhower
If We Would Try Living Just For Today
If we could live just for today with the ability to do what is totally right, our tomorrows would be different. Oh well, we are human and we can’t do that…that is too hard. Nobody is perfect and to err is human. Yes, we do err, and it is human, but I think we make excuses for our life and blame everything on being human, or on someone else when we should accept our own frailties. I think that we forget it is up to us to control our human nature, and that if we worked on us as much as we try to work on what someone else should do or be, our own life would be so much the better for it.
We do have things that make us walk falteringly and without affirmation. We become fearful and feel alone, but this is when we can reach up for that higher power that we humans have access to. It is a knowing that we are not forgotten even though it feels like it and even though the situation we are in makes us feel we have no one. If we seek consolation instead of anger for things which seem unbearable it will bring to us the comfort we need and make it bearable.
Living one day at a time is hard because we have situations which make us wonder about tomorrow. Things like wanting success, money, the budget we have to balance and can’t, the visit to the doctor because of symptoms, or love that is lost. There are so many things in life which deter our thinking and keep us from our focus. This I think, is again the time for us to remember that we have only today, we can only alter today as it unfolds.
It has been said in most things in life, there are not too many things that can’t be fixed. We must understand and accept what can and what cannot be fixed, finding a way to let it go.
We must believe that there is a season for everything, a time, a place and a purpose. We can only live in this moment, this day and it is up to us to make this day, the best day of our life.
Have a great and joyful day.
