Live For Today

Where does your mind reside?

The Past: Always musing backwards. Yesterday’s news is yesterday’s news. Regardless, extensively  reminiscing the past will buffer our lives -like watching a YouTube video with bad wifi. I reminisce infrequently, since daydreaming can turn into a productivity issue if not controlled. Just hope today will outplay yesterday’s festivities (or crappy moments).

The Future: To the people who deem themselves worriers rather than warriors. Worrying/obsessing about the future is absolutely pointless. Tomorrow hasn’t happened yet, so just let life take it’s course. Your brain can’t control what’s about to happen. Save your energy for the here and now.

The Present: This is my personal goal: TO BE PRESENT. Enjoying life as it is and let yesterday and tomorrow fly away like free birds. Let’s to be the very best version of ourselves. Every moment of the day.

What will you accomplish today? Who will you influence/inspire? What tiny (or major) step will you take to change the course of your tomorrow? You see, we have things to do. So get to it:)
