Today is a Gift

20 Jun

Everything you do TODAY should move you farther from YESTERDAY and closer to TOMORROW.


Sometimes the moves we make are big ones, they make huge impacts on our lives and change things. Sometimes the moves we make are tiny and are merely footsteps on our journey of life.

No matter what the size, shape, intensity, or magnitude, each thing we do should be constructive.

There are days when you will feel exhausted, overwhelmed, tired, frustrated, and much more. These are the most important of all of your days. It is in these days that the little things matter the most. You may not be able to get ALL of your work done. You may not be able to workout AS MUCH as you want, you may not be able to cook ALL your meals for the week, BUT you can do SOMETHING.


Since Regional’s has ended I find myself in this weird ‘lost puppy’ state. I know my end goal, but it’s quite far away. I’m not sure what I want my smaller goals to be. I’m not sure exactly how I should go about getting there. So I feel a tad lost.

What I need to remember is that I don’t need to have all of the answers NOW. It may take a few weeks to figure it all out and that is okay. That doesn’t mean I can’t still be productive. As long as I’m doing things that are making me a better athlete, a better employee, a better person, then I’m on the right track.

So I leave you with this. Everyone always says ‘live in the moment’ and as much as I do think that, it might be easier to wrap our heads around living in each day. Don’t worry about what is going down tomorrow, or in a week or a month, don’t get caught up on what happened yesterday, but choose to live in TODAY. Today is a gift.

    As I was always told, “Enjoy your strawberries,” (which means the same thing!)
