Tomorrow's Yesterday

Today is all we've got.
While we assume we get tomorrow and years afterward all we can be absolutely sure of is right now.
What are you doing with it?
Are you waiting for something to come down the pike to make your life better, happier, more exciting, slower, easier, or just plain different?
Or are you putting the time you've got to good use? Good use is what you make of it, like slowly savouring a small piece of dark chocolate before getting back to doing the stuff that never seems to  get done.
Plans are great. It's important to have something in mind for the future. Plans keep us active and engage and give us solid reasons to get out of bed in the morning.
But we've got right now to play with and it's tangible, here, and ready to use.
Today is tomorrow's yesterday. What do you want to remember about it?

Those are wonderful memories, Messymimi.

So right to hear, Leah. I am often that person who says "When this happens, then I'll..." It's wrong, I know. Thanks for the reminder.

Glad to be of service, Hilary.
