Today is today. It is not yesterday. It is not tomorrow. It is not meant to be filled with yesterday’s drama, yesterday’s tears, yesterday’s anything. It is not meant to be filled with tomorrow’s worries.
Today is to be filled with today’s events. If you are holding onto yesterday, you might not allow all the wonder that could unfold today. If you are remembering how nasty that person was yesterday, do you think they will be loving today? If you are holding onto the mistake you made, do you think it will be easy to try again today? If you are remembering the pain of yesterday, the joy of today will have pain washed over it.
If you are worrying about tomorrow, you are worrying about something that might never arrive. You are focussing your energy on what you don’t want. Focussed energy gets results. Focussing energy on something undesirable will get results, but probably not the ones you are hoping for.
By all means, learn from yesterday and take that learning into today. Dream about tomorrow. If you are looking for a peaceful, happy today, leave yesterday and tomorrow out of it.
Step lightly – enjoy all the possibilities of today by living today, not yesterday or tomorrow.
