Imagine for a moment that you have been given this one day to live – there are no yesterdays or tomorrows. If that were true, how would you experience this day differently? What would you choose to think, see, and do?
Today truly is when life’s dramas will unfold. We can learn from the past and plan for tomorrow, but we can’t live in the past or future. The present moment is where we will experience life as time clicks forward. This day is filled with tremendous possibilities for change, moving forward to new adventures and with new living and survival standards.
We can choose to dwell on yesterday’s hurtful memories, or we can see through the eyes of a child – with newness, joy, and the thrill of adventure.
Take a moment today and pause. Experience deeply all the sights and sounds around you; listen for God’s voice. Allow yourself to feel each emotion and meditate on new found insights and wisdom that the day brings. Take a moment to relax and let your imagination flow positively without limitation. Allow the possibilities of this day to become clear in your mind.
Then walk through this day in keen awareness, mindful of the miracles and possibilities it offers. Today we can build new dreams and discover solutions to unsolved problems. There will be chances to see, hear, touch, taste, feel, laugh, and love that we’ve never had before.
Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) wisely said . . . ‘We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do.’
Inside each person there are possibilities he or she has not discovered. When we rush through the day without observing our thoughts, or that small still voice we overlook those possibilities and can end up walking away from blessings staring at us; or never moving from our comfort zone to new and exciting endeavors. Living with intentional awareness will strengthen and broaden our vision of possibilities.
There are places called “there.” Are you “there” yet?
This very moment can be a new beginning. There will be thrilling possibilities to see if you will stop, look and listen with your mind and heart. Cheers to your success and happiness regardless of what’s going on in the world….or even YOUR world.
Lk 9:62 “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
