“Look well to this day. Yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day.” Excerpt from an ancient Sanskrit poem
Wow! You opened your eyes and could see; you listened again and could hear; you were embraced by a hug and could feel; you smelled the fragrance of the day; you tasted the warmth of nourishment. You are here again for a new day filled with opportunity. The field of possibility is waiting for your order, so what will you intend today? When you wake in the morning, give gratitude for that opportunity to be a part of the world today. If you live today with the intention to make the most of each experience, whether it is described as good or bad in your mind, then it will be a day well lived. It is your choice. And with the choice to live between the dream of happiness and the vision of hope, allow the joy overwhelm you as you take in the simplicity of the beauty that surrounds you. Ahh, to start this way, what a gift! So “Look well therefore to this day.” And if your decide that your life starts with a prayer and ends with a prayer, just believe that everything in between is the perfect answer for which you can be grateful for each and everything!
