The older I get, the faster time seems to go by… there’s only one thing that truly matters and that is…“Today”.
Yesterday is gone and there’s nothing we can do about it, we can only do better…“Today”
What about the future? We can only plan for it…“Today”.
Today is all we have so make “Today” the very best! (By: Scott Hallock)
The older one gets, the faster time seems to go by. Weren’t we all just children with no worries, carefree…just two feet high? Now we are tall, all grown up… know-it-alls. Suddenly, things changed, got worn down, and out of order…Turn around and everything has moved on, forgotten and gotten colder.
Yesterday has come and gone and all the mistakes, troubles, worry and pain are dead and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. One can only do better “Today”.
The time on your watch only just says, “Now”
Not much you can do about a ‘minute’ from now, other than sit and wait for that ‘minute’ to come. Once that ‘minute’ has arrived, all you have is one ‘minute’ to use it and make it the very best possible. ‘Now’ will come and go and you will not be able to get it back….It’s the way that it is meant to be….A true part of life.
In the famous song “Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On” by, Jimmy Buffet the song talks about how he bought a watch that “doesn’t use numbers or moving hands” and that “It always just says… Now“.

‘Now’ is all we have, yet so many of us want to live in the past, hanging onto our old accomplishments talking about the “way it used to be” and never progress, move on or succeed.
Mother Teresa once said; “Don’t talk to me about where I have been, talk to me about where I am going”. Wise words we can all live by. I am grateful for Mother Teresa.
Since we are older now, wise and know-it-all’s, we can admit we may have been wrong and make a mighty change. Change is good and keeps us fresh. Why not, “Today” is all we have and we can use it to the fullest so, why not surprise everyone with a new outlook on life, a smile instead of a scowl, a happy attitude instead of negativity or be calm, kind and happy rather than angry.
A 93 year old man sits in a chair listening to the radio waiting to die, but all of a sudden an amazing thing happens when an old song he remembers from his past starts to play. He rises up and stands for a moment…and then, with a smile on his face he raises up his arms, moves his body and starts to dance…celebrating a wonderful life that he has lived, rich and full of wonderful memories, good people and even a greater…“Today”.
May we all use our “Now” to live our “Today”.
