19th April 2012

“One day at a time. This is enough.  Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone: and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come.  Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.”

Ida Scott Taylor

Spending too much time looking at what could have been or what could be is pointless, because if you make today beautiful enough, when you look back on it, it is less likely that it will be with sadness, regret or grievance. No one knows what tomorrow will bring, it could make or break your day, week, year and it could change you in ways you don’t even realise – so don’t over think it. Tonight I realised how much I have changed as a person, how proud of myself I actually am and how, when I look back, it is the happy things I remember. Live in today, and make the most of it no matter how it is going – how might you go about doing that?

  1. Everything in this quote (and in this entry) speaks to being grounded in the present enough to enjoy what life has to offer. Love it!
