The quote above has been teaching me many things this week. There are some of us that live in the past. We live thinking about the missed opportunities and how we wish we could travel back in time and make some changes or due a few things. Then, there are some of us that live in the future. We plan years ahead of us and we long for that day to come. The day that everything will be exactly how we plan and we think that until that day we will be complete. Happy.
Lately I've been living in my past and my future. I start thinking of all the things I wish I had done. I start thinking about how my life would be different if I had gone to a different school or had done this or that. I question if my life would be better. Then I start to think and imagine the life that I want in the future. I start to go over my 10 year plan. And I can't stop myself from smiling. I am a dreamer; (you can just call me Josefina). I have big dreams and a wild imagination. I have dreams and plans for my life and my loved ones. All I am missing is the opportunities. So unconsciously I've been neglecting my present, I've been ignoring today.
I recently read Matthew 6:34, "Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself". We plan and worry, at times, for a tomorrow that is not promised. And the past, well is that, the past, which can't be rewritten. But today, today is open to possibilities. But more than that, today is what we will regret tomorrow. What we didn't do, the words we didn't say to those we love, and the time we didn't give them.
Today is all we have.
