This quote actually caught me off guard when I finished up my last post. I’ve been concentrating on my dreams for my life seven years from now, when I should be concentrating on today.
Every now and again I have to remind myself to find the joy in what’s happening in the present. I tend to find myself looking to the future and not enjoying what is today. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so making each day count is imperative to living a full and happy life.
This doesn’t, of course, mean to forget about the the future. Planning is important. But planning and living a beautiful life today is too.
The weather has changed. It’s cold and wet and dark out. I won’t be surfing the net to find a new property in Florida (to enjoy seven years from now). Today I will enjoy a hot cup of coffee, walk my sweet dog, tidy up the house, prepare a warm meal for my family and enjoy a good book. Perhaps I will bake a sweet treat. I will definitely take a hot bath and listen to soft jazz. And be grateful. Grateful for the days I’ve already been given, and for today. 24 hours, 1,440 minutes to enjoy and make count.
How are you making today count?
