The Present

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

“Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
And today? Today is a gift.
That's why we call it the present.”
Babatunde Olatunji

If you treat each day as if it were your first, you will never lose your way here on Spark. Don't look back and don't look forward, today is all that matters; remember to live in the here and now. Berating yourself for past mistakes or worrying about what may happen tomorrow takes your focus off what you should be doing. Try to start each day with a smile and tell yourself you will have a successful day. The journey may be long, but by starting each day as if it were your first, the journey is kept fresh and fun. Have fun and be good to you. Give yourself the gift of health each and every day.

“The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.”
Abraham Lincoln

    Hi Elle,

    I have always loved this saying. As yes, we should all remember to live one day at a time and start each day with a blessing.

    You're right... and I think that concept can be used in almost every situation.

    have a great day!

    Very nice. I didn't know who'd said that first cool that you found out who. The closer we get to living in the present, the happier we will be.
