What is the real secret of living 24 hours at a time? Isn't it really a
matter of feeling completely comfortable in the present rather than
believing that happiness depends on something in the future?
Whatever our situation today, it's something we must live through and deal
with effectively. We may be overlooking many wonderful things in our present
life simply because we believe we need some exciting experience that can
only come later on.
We also might be overlooking present opportunities because we're spending
too much time in the past. The past, whether it was good or bad, is beyond
Our mission is to live effectively and happily today. We can do this best
when we realize that yesterday and tomorrow don't really exist - today is
all we can be sure of.
*I'll live today in the present, handling every problem as well as I can and
enjoying every experience that comes to me.*
