Today is a Gift

One of my fave quotes is "Yesterday is history, the future is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why they call it the present!". It has been kind of a guidance for me to lift myself up when I'm in a low moment. By remembering the quote, I am able to tell myself that what's done is done, regrets always come at the end. But what matters the most is that you still have tomorrow. Tomorrow is a new day that gives you another chance to fix the wrong or bad thing you've done in the past. Tomorrow brings you a chance to start all over again. Everyone makes mistakes once in a while, but everyone deserve another chance to be a better person. When you think you've done something bad yesterday, just let it go. Learn the lesson, let go of the bad feelings, forgive yourself, move on to a brighter tomorrow. So, this is what I'm doing now...I'm focusing on the present time, taking each lesson of the past time and riding along for a brighter future. Here's one article that I found about the present time...

Yesterday is History, The Future is a Mystery, But Today is a Gift

Use the present of life

The other day I was sitting with my children and we were watching a cartoon. On the cartoon there was a screen there was a part where one of the main charters said that "Yesterday is history, the future is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why they call it the present! That was one of the greatest saying that I have heard in a very long time. The greatest thing about the saying is that it came from a children's cartoon. As they say from the mouths of babes. There are many adults that really need to understand that today is the greatest day of each and every person's life.

The past is history we should all use and remember that past is just that the past. So if we create a better now we are using this great gift this today as the present it really is by making the now better we are making the future better. Every day that we are here on this earth we are presented with a outstanding gift. You only have one you there will not be another person like you ever again in life. You me and everyone else are an outstanding work of art. You are all priceless. You are all blessed with abilities and we never really ever give ourselves a chance.

The first step is to believe in you. That believe needs to start today no one can do it for you. No one can do this for you and your cannot do it for anyone else. So stop making excuses start getting your own life active and keep that positive mindset. Start today start with yourself. Use the gift and live your life to the fullest. Good luck and great life.
