It’s Always Today

July 16, 2013

time

No one means to let their life slip by.

No one wants to wake up and wonder where the last ten years went.

Yet we live our lives in such a way that day by day, week by week we just try to survive, not really taking action to plan for the future. Sure, we think about it a lot, but one look at our lives will show a sole interest in getting through that treacherous beast we call “today.” We think on our future – the great things we will do and become – thinking for sure we will get started “tomorrow,” but there is one fatal flaw in that plan:

Tomorrow is always one step ahead of us. It is always, and ever will be, today.

I’m writing this “today” and you’re reading it “today,” because no matter who you are or where you find yourself in this world, it’s today right now. You’re smack in the middle of it. And only the things you do today, can you be sure will have been done tomorrow.

So what are you waiting for? It won’t be today forever.

Or will it?
