Ripples #669: One Day!
For our tribe of 30,320 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
Don’t let yesterday
use up too much of today.
-Cherokee Proverb, submitted by Lindsay at Lakeland College
To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past or responsibly plan for the future. The idea is simply to not allow yourself to get lost in regret about the past or worries about the future.
-Thich Nhat Hanh, shared via Facebook by Gina Sue in Lincoln, NE
If you had exactly ONE DAY to live, who would you touch base with? What activities would you enjoy? What would you eat? I have some great news that might scare you: You do, in fact, have exactly one day to live…TODAY! You cannot live yesterday, it is already done and gone. You cannot live tomorrow because it hasn’t arrived yet. Our pebble cautions against using too much of today on yesterday, and our boulder invites you to worry less about the future. That leaves us with making this day your one awesome chance: maximize it, savor it, live it!
