THE GIFT CALLED TODAY
Yesterday is gone. It is like goods that have been sold. A completed transaction.
Today is a gift. That is why it is called The Present.
Tomorrow is unknown, wrapped in mysteries.
How true these words ring!
We should learn lessons from the past. Lessons that will make us act better in the present and prepare for the future.
But THE PRESENT is ever present with us. It is our current reality. It is all we have now. What stares us in the face. It is a gift; our moment to treasure.
So we should make good use of it. When you get a gift, you can do one of three things.
Or take it for granted.
What are you doing with the gift called today? That is all you have, by the way. Within the twenty-four hours that make up a day, you can take decisions. You can choose to waste time or maximise it and fulfil your dreams.
When you reject the gift of today because you are chained to the pains of the past, you cannot enjoy the blessings it holds for you.
When you take the gift of today for granted, feeling there is still time to maximise the opportunities it holds, you will find yourself waking up to confront many wasted yesterdays.
When you cherish the gift of today, it will blossom in your hands and like a beautiful butterfly that emerges from the dark cocoon, you will see a present reality that is as bright as the sun.
Today, you have the gift of The Present.
Cherish that gift.
