Yesterday is history.
Tommorow is the future.
Today is the present. Consider it a gift.
When we wake every morning, we can look at the day ahead in many ways, there may be tasks or chores that fill us with dread. Or there may be a meeting we really don’t want to attend. All considered bad.
But no matter what the day ahead holds for us, we should always look for a positive side. It’s up to us, and only us to get the best out of every new day. And that day and time, is the present.
Then there is the past. No matter how hard we try, we can’t change the past and have to live with what we have done, or in some situations, what we haven’t done. We may have done wrong to a friend or someone close to our hearts. Hurt them in a way we think there is no way of righting the wrong.
In some cases this may be the fact and we need to get on with our lives and live to the best of our abIlity, with that guilt in the dark crevices of our mind, which every now and again, comes back to bite us on the bum.
Then there are other times when we wished we had done something, either for ourselves or for others. Taken that short weekend away or planned for a longer vacation instead of staying home and doing nothing except for the gardening, which can be done any weekend.
There are the other regrets, not telling someone how much they mean to you and that you love them with every fibre of your body. And when you eventually decide to tell them, it’s too late. They are gone or are out of your life.
And this leaves us with the future. This is one thing we can manipulate, mould and change into something we truly want. We can bend and shape our future to our own specific wants and desires.
With this in mind, it won’t just happen. We need to put in some effort. Real effort. Not just a passing glance at what real effort should be.
And with that effort we will see reward. The very reward we have been seeking.
Make everyday a gift to yourself.
