Life Is Lived In A Day
Updated: Jan 10
There’s no point worrying about the future or dwelling on the past, because your life is lived in a day.
Your next twenty-four hours are the only ones that really matter.
You can plan all you like, set yourself goals, have ambitions or the rest of it, but the reality is, what you do today is what makes the difference.
We are historical creatures, so I’m not discounting the past, nor am I suggesting that you don’t consider the future, what I am saying though, is that life doesn’t happen there.
Life happens today.
And then it unfolds, one day at a time.
I’m not talking about a single moment; I’m talking about the course of a whole day – natures own unit of measure, twenty-four hours.
So, what are you going to do today that will get you where you want to be?
What are you going to do today that makes your life worth living?
These are the questions you need to be asking yourself if you want to get better at living life.
Your life is grand, so if you’re going to keep dwelling on it’s grandeur, you’re likely going to find yourself getting stuck, as there’s just too much to absorb all at once.
There really is no point in dwelling all those things you think you should have done, or basking in the glory of your victories.
Nor is there a point in getting stuck in a perpetual dream about your future.
Because none of that really matters today, today life is moving forward with or without you; time doesn’t stop.
Like a wave that crashes into the shore, life is unfolding before you – so it becomes a matter of whether you’re going to ride the wave in.
If there are things that you want to do;
Things you’d like to accomplish,
Then what you do today is the only thing that’s going to get you closer.
Don’t underestimate the power of day, that’s where the magic happens and that’s where life is lived – so keep your attention there.
