Friday Favorites #7

Favorite day of the week.............TODAY of course!!!  Now, you can take that to mean literally in Friday, or you can take it as today...meaning whatever day today is! 


Live Today! Do not allow your spirit to be softened of your happiness to be limited by a day you cannot have back or a day that does not yet exist.”        Steve Maraboli

“There's only one day at a time here, then it's tonight and then tomorrow will be today again.”  
                                                                                                       Bob Dylan

“Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits. "                                      Sarah Breathnach

“Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift - today.”     
                                                                                                     Steve Maraboli

Being present in TODAY is something that I'm working on....too many times, I've wished it away or wasted it away.  Too many times I've been stuck in the never-ending cycle of wishing for things I didn't have or hoping that ONE day I will have the life I want.

 Well, no matter my circumstances...I can always have the life I want.  Maybe I won't have all the "things" I want, but LIFE is mine to create..and to create in the way I want, to alter my perspective and to prioritize the important things.  To realize that I can be happy today...NOW, not down the road when I lose 20 lbs, or get out of debt or live in a nicer house.  Sure, all those things would be great! But in the overall scheme of things....they won't bring peace to my heart or joy to my soul.

 Learning to live for today, being there for my loved ones TODAY, accomplishing something TODAY and not putting things off, being productive TODAY, being grateful TODAY, having that positive attitude get the point!!  So for me, and for TODAY and for the tomorrow that will become TODAY, I'm choosing to be present, to be grateful, and to love the life I have!
