Live for today, forget yesterday, plan for tomorrow

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
— Groucho Marx

What will today bring you? Well it can bring joy beyond your greatest dreams or it can bring the greatest sadness imaginable. What do you want it to bring is the real question? 

I used to get up each day and just go about my life as if tomorrow would always come. Eat my breakfast as if there would always be food on the table, hug my kids as if I'd always have them close. Well I now look very differently on things, when you finally wake up and your cupboards are empty and you kids are gone it changes you. Now I can choose to be depressed and let it ruin my day or I can look at the bigger picture. I can head to the grocery store and get the food I need to fill the cupboards and I can call my kids, make plans to see them after work. But the biggest thing I can do to make me happy is remember that I have three wonderful boys and that they love me very much, see I am blessed and I am even smiling behind the tears.
Yesterday may be filled with pain and anguish, but you cannot change the past so forgive yourself for it and start living for today. Remember that all you went through made you the person you are right now, never hold regrets for the mistakes you may have made  but hold joy that you have breath today and are stronger because of those mistakes.
And as for tomorrow, it has not come yet so why worry about it? I am not saying you should not plan your future because I believe that you should. Do you have dreams? Do you have hopes? Do you have aspirations? Then live for today and plan for tomorrow.  Get out your pad and pen and write down all your dreams, hopes, aspirations, the  future has not been written yet so write it your way. Make every moment count for if today was your last would you be happy with who you were and what you did with your life? Love yourself right now for being just you and let no one bring you down. Dream!
So I have today and it's what I do right now that will open the doorway to tomorrow. Live your life and know that the ones that matter will always have your back and will always be HERE WAITING.

"Make the best of your day today, this is the first day of the rest of your life. Love, laugh, smile, be yourself, never change for anyone!"

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. . . . Explore. Dream."
Mark Twain

I wonder how many people in life read this and actually take it to heart? We live in a fast paced society that makes us all believe that we must do things according to certain rules and guidelines. Well I throw bullshit to that and say its time you start living for you!
Do you want to be like those old folk that sit in a nursing home depressed and waiting to die? I know I sure don't so then make a choice with me right now, start living for you. What are your dreams, your hopes, your desires, your aspirations. What and who makes you happy? What have you never done because you were always told you were not good enouph or that it is a waste of time? Well it's a choice like everything else in life, do you want to truly live or do you want to stay in the prison of you own design!
So live, laugh, love! Be everything you always wanted to be, have faith and step of the edge and believe that you will be held and loved. Those that matter will be there and those that don't, we'll frankly there not worth even a thought.
Be crazy and be real, live for your your today and tomorrow. Write your future because it's yours to write.


I often dreaded a Monday due to the fact it was no longer Saturday or Sunday. I now look at Mondays as being the gateway to tomorrow. I mean on the weekend everything kinda comes to a hault, its your time to relax, re-boot, refresh yourself. Spend time with family and friends, have fun.
But Mondays are the essence of tomorrow, without Mondays we would have no future meaning no hopes, no dreams, nothing. so from today onward I will grasp Mondays as a blessing, I must be still alive for if I was not the alarm clock would not be ringing in my ear telling me to get UP and start a new week, lol.
Funny how as we get older our priorities change, our friends change, we change but i believe for the better. We learn from the past but must leave it there and move forward. At least in my case that is what i am doing.
Today is the gateway to my tomorrow which is silver lined and waiting for me to write. Leave yesterday right where it belongs and face tomorrow with the joy of what today can bring.
Happy Monday to all those special people in my life, you know who you are?:^)

I have learned that to LIVE is to be real, to be yourself, to be free, to let no one else dictate your future, your dreams, your hopes, your life is yours and no one else's, be free and live. To LAUGH is what powers your daily energy, without laughter there is only sadness and loneliness, laugh every day, giggle, smile, be happy for something, a child, a song, a picture. Then there is LOVE, there are different types of LOVE, the LOVE you have for a parent, a child, even a friend then there is the LOVE that you have for only that special someone. The kinda LOVE that makes your stomach tighten up and feel like butterflies in it, the type of LOVE that makes your knees week, the type of LOVE that makes you smile from cheek to cheek, the type of LOVE that is eternal between a man and a woman,the type of LOVE that SOUL MATES come from, the type of LOVE that lasts ALWAYS FOREVER. LIVE LAUGH LOVE, if we all followed these three little words our world would truly be a happier and more peaceful place to live.
Try it on for size, what do you have to loose, nothing...
