This is the Moment

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” Mother Teresa (1910–1997)

I love this quote from Mother Teresa and the many, many variations on it that you can find any day on any number of motivational sites. It’s  simple really, but oh-so-hard to actually practice it in day-to-day life.

I’m guilty of over thinking what I did yesterday and belittling myself over the mistakes I’ve made. I’ve also been known to worry about the tomorrows that have yet to come. The ones that may never come. When what I should be thinking about it today.

Enjoy the now. Don’t spend precious moments worrying about mistakes that can not be undone or tomorrow’s that may never come.

Live for today. Live for the moment.
