Today is Your Day

We often hear others who are about to embark on a new direction, a life modification or new perspective that they will begin their adventure tomorrow or the ever popular “Monday” start date. The question always seems to arise – “why not today?” Is today not good enough?  Is today too soon to make the first step?

The words of Ben Franklin always seem to ring out making it as true now at it was then: “Don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today”.  There is no time like the present.  To quote a line from the movie Rocky 3, “There is no tomorrow”. Though that may seem harsh and appear to be without hope, it is reality. Tomorrow has yet to be and sadly for some, may never come.  Putting something off until tomorrow creates a loop-hole in our commitment – an escape clause – an easy way out.

This is why today is the most important day of our lives. What better time to start something new or different than today? Why would we wait given the reality? Tomorrow never comes to those who choose not to live today. Today is what makes tomorrow worth living for.

Our day is today – seize the day!
