Today is where yesterday and tomorrow meet. Today is where yesterday has brought you. Today is where you decide yesterday won’t define tomorrow. Today is where you change tomorrow by acting today. Today is where possibility lies, with yesterday written and tomorrow not yet created. Today is what we have now. Do something your future self will thank you for, but most of all cherish today as if there were no yesterday and no tomorrow.
Life is a series of moments, a series of nows, a series of choices, a series of yeses and nos, a series of ups and downs. Stop obsessing about what’s past, gone, done, what could have been, what should have been, what might be or not be. Focus on the moment, the now, the choice you have today. There won’t be another one just like it, and it can make all the difference.
Every day is full of possibilities. Possibilities to push boundaries, to unleash potential, to go harder than ever before. Possibilities can turn into realities. Every day has ‘watch this space’ written all over it. Every day can be better than the next. Today is the only way we’ll change the game. Today is all we have. Start writing, painting, singing, building, doing, being. Make today a space to watch.
Stars are formed in a cloud of dust. The cloud of gas and dust collapses under it’s own gravitational attraction. And a protostar is born, made up of some of the gas and dust it’s gathered in the process. What does this have to do with you? Well, you never know what might happen tomorrow. If you think your world is ending or you feel your world is unclear, remember you never know what might happen tomorrow. All the trouble and turmoil is building you into a star. A beautiful, bright star. Have faith. And don’t give up too easily. Your world isn’t ending, it’s just beginning.
Mortality is our only true weakness. In a flash, we could be gone and so could anyone around us. But mortality is also our greatest asset. Think about how much more we’d give, if we realised how precious our time is and how limited our time is. We’d love deeper. We’d forgive those who wronged us more quickly. We’d say the words left unsaid. We’d swallow our pride. We’d be bolder in our pursuits. The clouds that loom over our mind would dissipate, because the answers would become much clearer. Let’s not wait until tomorrow. Today is your day to write as you please. Only put off until tomorrow that you are willing to die having left undone.
Hold onto who you are. Hold onto your dignity, compassion and enthusiasm. Hold onto your patience, tolerance and forgiveness. Hold onto those who inspire and energise you, who laugh and cry with you. Hold onto love, the love others give you and your capacity to love endlessly. Hold onto the beautiful memories of times past. Hold onto hope for the future and for the unknown. Hold onto today. Hold on tight to the good things in life. Be careful they don’t slip through the cracks or shatter on the floor. Not all great things happen twice.
It’s never too late. To say sorry. To be honest. To try again. To change your mind. To learn a lesson. To turn around. To alter your perceptions.To be who you might have been. To be who you want to be. We can always start now, no matter how old we are, how tied down we are, or how scared we are. We’ll never know unless we try. It’s never too late. Give it a go.
