There are many lessons being learned by humanity in these uncertain times. In the long run, the biggest one might prove to be, “Live life today and every day to the fullest extent possible.”
The events of the past year and a half have brought life into pinpoint focus. We all tend to live in the past or future too much. The more we are able to live in the moment, the fuller and richer life becomes.
It is important to learn from the past, but then let it go. When we hang on to regrets related to past hurts and mistakes, we are just wasting our precious time. As Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
On the other side of the coin, it is important to envision and intend to create the future you desire, but then let it go. Relax and don’t push at the universe. If your intention does not waver and your actions match it, then trust that the universe will help bring it to you.
Step back and enjoy today while you are in the process of creating your tomorrow. Life is indeed short, and every day, every step of the way on your life path is a treasure.
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” ~ Oscar Wilde
“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” ~ Corrie Ten Boom
“I was smiling yesterday, I am smiling today and I will smile tomorrow, simply because life is too short to cry for anything.” ~ Santosh Kalwar
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” ~ Mother Theresa
“The future depends on what you do today.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

I agree. This is what I wanted to express in my latest poem, 2 Love as if it Were My Last Day.
