Live for Today

Working out an agreement with everyday opportunity is like making a major purchase.  Everyday offers a new bargain, a chance to live it or dread it, an occasion to invest ourselves in whatever comes. Unless your disposition works against you, the day ahead is like a bank account full of money.  You may spend it as you wish.  You can’t invest it, because tomorrow it will be gone.  You can’t give it to someone else, they have their own.  You can’t horde it, time is fleeting and slips by suddenly and without warning.

So today, now is enough.  It offers time to do whatever we feel like doing.  It lends to us the very essence of what life is all about.  And, do not doubt it, it is a loan.  For there is nothing we can do with it that will preserve it beyond the contributions we make by spending it lavishly and well on doing and being and caring and living out a life of purpose and fulfillment now.

Making Choices to Make Life Count

The irony is we all are given the same amount of time each day.  What we do with it varies to a considerable degree.  How we use, spend, make it into something worthy is up to us.  Whether we make choices that will make the day fruitful and productive, happy and content, useful and uplifting is all up to us.

At its end we cannot blame others for its use.  We are the ones held accountable for its expenditure.  We are the ones who make it into something or waste it trivially.  It is so easy to see it disappear, to feel it slip away, to watch it as water moving toward the drain.  If it is to be anything at all, it is ours to make it so.

Now is Enough.  Making it so is the task given us every single day.  And every single day multiplies into many for our contributions to a life that we can say is Enough.
