Tomorrow’s Life May Be Too Late October 9, 2011

Scruffy-CatToo many people sacrifice happiness they could have today, in exchange for  happiness they hope to have tomorrow.

Sadly, tomorrow may never arrive.

Life is uncertain.  The end of the road may be a short week away.  Crossing the street, we might get hit by a bus.

Or, like Steve Jobs, we might be diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

The present moment is the only place that we can find peace, love, joy, and happiness.   Fit as much happiness into today as you can!

We change and grow.

What worked yesterday may not work today.

What works today may not work tomorrow.

Instead of trying to plan out your entire life from the limited vantage point you have today, let life unfold day by day and see where it leads.

Focus on today.

If it works now, it works.

Aah . . . that’s better!
