Living In Today

Something I have realised recently is that I have spent too much time living in tomorrow instead of today. I have wasted so much time dwelling on and planning for the next big thing. Why do we always focus on whats ahead of us, and not focus on the day we are living?

Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with thinking about the future (because it is very important)...but do we some times dwell on it too much? We seem to always be longing for the next stage of life. How many times have people thought, "I can't wait till the weekend", or "I can't wait to have a girlfriend/boyfriend" , or "I can't wait to get married", or even"I can't wait to have kids". We rarely spend time thinking about the day we are living and what we can do to have an impact there and then!

We have a purpose for Today. Why do we need to rush through life, always looking forward, instead of focussing on the day we are in. We take each day we live for granted and one day we will look back on them and realise what a gift that day was and wish we had lived it differently. We should make every day we live, matter. Every day is special. Lets live in Today and not in Tomorrow.
