“My future starts when I wake up every morning.” (Miles Davis) – seen recently on the Jack’s Winning Words blog.
Wow, I’m living in the future. I woke up this morning. As one gets older, one doesn’t take that event as casually as \when they were young. Time becomes a bit more precious, even as it seems to speed up and fly by.
Some people dread the future or perhaps just the next day, especially if it’s a Monday. A few may spend so much time being concerned about the future and what it might bring that they fail to live in the moment – in today. For those people the dawn of a new day awakens fears and causes anxiety.
I am reminded of a the words of Psalm 118-24 –
“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Perhaps if one starts each day by reciting the Psalm it will put them in the right frame of mind to face the day. The future is now…I, for one, am glad to be in it. No matter what today may hold, being there to experience it is certainly better than the alternative.
The future is now…rejoice and be glad in it.
