TODAY IS THE DAY
Today is the day we were looking for yesterday,
today is the day we will remember tomorrow,
but what will we do with today, today?
Will we spend it regretting yesterday,
or worrying about tomorrow?
If today is truly the first day of the rest of our life
should we not give it the attention it deserves?
Should we not live it to its fullest?
Should we not experience all that today has to offer?
What if we knew that today was the last dayof our life?
Would we show more kindness and compassion?
Would we be more forgiving,
not only of others, but of ourselves?
Would we accept and give love more freely?
Would we see those things that keep us apart
for what they truly are, molehills that we have turned into mountains?
Would we lay aside our petty and quarelsome ways
and seek peace and reconciliation?
If we truly knew that this was the last day ofour life,
and who knows it may be,
should we not live it to its fullest?
