“Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be. But what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today. It’s been that way all this year. It’s been that way so many times.” ― Ernest Hemingway
This Day Shall Never Come Again
Today is the first day of the rest of your life. You will never see this day again.
Surely you’ve heard that phrase before. But I wanted to repeat it for you today because it applies to this very day. This very hour.
How can you make your next 24 hours worthwhile? You could take the time to think big thoughts. You could take care of yourself. You could do something special for someone else. Nothing big, but something.
You’ll probably have a busy day – work…kids…errands…household chores. But amidst it all, take time for yourself. Take time to stop and be still…Allow yourself to drift. Give your subconscious a chance to percolate.
You will be amazed at the solutions…ideas…plans that will come your way, just by sitting for a while quietly, alone, allowing your spirit to take over. You may find you’re more clever than you thought.
My prayer for you on this special day is that you be protected at all times. May you be safe and be surrounded by people who love you – whether you know it or not. Take this wondrous day and make it your own. Make it count. That’s really all that can be expected of you.
P.S. All those individual days strung together equal a lifetime. Hemingway was right! The major twists and turns of that life were directed by what you chose and what you did – in just one single day along the way.
