Today is all that u have
When u wake up in the morning, do not expect to see the evening – live as though today is all that you have. Yesterday has passed with its good and evil, while tomorrow has not yet arrived.
If u are truthful with urself n hv a firm, solid resolve, u will undoubtedly convince urself of the following : Today is my last day to live. When u achieve this attitude, u will profit from evry moment of ur day, by developing ur personality, expanding ur abilities, n purifying ur deeds. Then u say to urself :
O past that has departed n is gone, I will not cry over u. u will not see me remembering u, not even for a moment, bcz u hv traveled away from me never to return
O future, u are in the realm of the unseen, so I will not be obsessed by ur dreams. I will not be preoccupied about what is to come bcz tomorrow is nothing n has not yet been created.
"today is my only day” is one of the most important statements in the dictionary of happiness, for those who desire to live life in its fullest splendor and brilliance.
