For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. Steve Jobs
I was in junior high school the first time I heard the phrase, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” I noticed that for some people this saying became a bit of a platitude, like “Have a nice day,” and it lost its deeper meaning. For me, however, it was a clarion wake-up call! Each day is the only day that I can live my life. If I keep waiting for something to happen or change, I could be waiting a long time. This belief has been a cornerstone of my journey in this lifetime, and it has kept me awake to my choices in ways nothing else ever has.
“Someday” is today! Today your ship comes in and your life begins. Today you are living in the Light of Truth, the Love of God, and the Infinite Abundant Reality. Don’t postpone your well-being until sometime in the future. It is NOW. Practice believing it, accepting it, and trusting it! Claim your good today—now!
Spiritual Contemplation: “When I . . . then I . . .” keeps you in the future, not the present. Where are you living this out in your life?
