"Today" for Today

A most spectacular sky full of clouds-T.Allen-Mercado 2009


Today is a new day, a day full of firsts: my first thought, my first sip of coffee (not necessarily in that order), the first cat/ child/ phone call to greet me; my first smile

Today is a new day, a day full of choices: forgive yesterday's foolery, reward today's accomplishments, forget old worries, forge ahead, take precautions, take heed; learn

Today is a new day, a day full of love: birdsong, trilling, laughter, familiar voices, a restful sigh, winds blowing, branches rustling; a joyous high

Today is a new day a day full of peace; silence

Tomorrow is unknown, seize your today




I wrote this off the cuff, inspired by a series of blog posts I read whilst sipping on the java; posts about yesterday, posts about tomorrow...here's one for "Today".


Peace

This is beautiful. Seize the day is right, for you never know what tomorrow will bring. And yesterday can't be changed!

Thank you for sharing this.

Yay for off the cuff (and the use of the word trilling).

Kathy said...

Beautiful....and after reading Eckhart Tolle...that is exactly what I have learned to do! Have an awesome day!

This is perfect--and why I don't make New Year's resolutions. Haven't for many years. Because too much weight put on it. Every day is a new chance to start over, to enjoy all anew. Sometimes I even need to think about new moments--because I can mess up many times in a day! Thank-you for your beautiful words.

So very true. Today is here right now. It's wise to plan for the future, but not at the cost of missing out on the present.
