It is my observation that many people place a lot of effort in planning, mapping out and designing what their lives will be like further down the road - probably encouraged by that classically worn-out question, where do you see yourself in five to ten years? Subconsciously or not, every day we are pressured into visualizing what our tomorrows will be like, and we’re lead to believe that the best is yet to come. But I think that when you spend the better part of your days waiting for something special to bring color into them, you may be giving up more than you realize. The present. There’s so much emphasis on building your future you can loose sight of what you have now. You can grow so serious stressing about how your life will be, that you overlook the very instant you find yourself in, and even forget to appreciate the simple things that make you smile. What ever happened to having a little fun? Or about laughing yourself silly? What about doing something you love?
You may not realize how often you’re just lingering, till the future comes to you. And do you really want to wait for the right time to live your life? Is there such a thing if not the now? You have to know, you have to be conscious, you have to realize that when you wake up in the morning, that is your chance, your time to do something great, something unique, something unforgettable with your life. Tomorrow is a God given courtesy, a gift many people don’t get a chance to experience. And those who do, have the opportunity to create something memorable with their time. So many hours are spent waiting for something wonderful to walk into your life, and the rest of the time is depleted worrying it’ll never get there. Why wait to be that special factor in your life? Why not seize the day? Why not this very moment? Why not?
Consider that for some, tomorrow is no longer an option. But for those who wait on tomorrow, one day, you just might look back and wish it were yesterday. If you don’t understand what I mean, ask yourself this question: “If you knew tomorrow would never come, what would you change in your life today?”
