“You must engrave onto your heart one phrase: Today is my only day to live.
If you have eaten warm, fresh bread today, then what do yesterday’s dry, rotten bread and tomorrow’s anticipated bread matter?
If you are truthful with yourself and have a firm, solid resolve, you will undoubtedly convince yourself of the following: today is my last day to live. When you achieve this this, you will profit from every moment of your day…”
As the hours become days, days become months and years change over in universal transition, do not neglect today.
Today is all that I have. Today is my only day to live. Today is my last day to live. These are amongst the most important statements from the dictionary of happiness.
We humans are quite averse to these sentiments- it being our last day has a certain solemness too it and thus the thought, however certain, is avoided at all costs. This avoidance leads to procrastination. Yet, it needn’t be that way. Yesterday for sure is past, and tomorrow is uncertain. Only today is yours, so live for it.
Deal with the present: speak good, help others and organise your time. Do not let even a moment slip by with it’s lost opportunity.
