"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin."
As we start a New Year, it is important to recognize that yesterday--the past--is gone. We can learn from it, but we shouldn't stay stuck in the past. That doesn't serve us. Nor does it serve us to be so oriented towards that future that we forget to pay attention to today. As you begin a New Year, why not focus on each day. Why not live each day fully and in the moment? When you do, it changes how you perceive 2010 and what each day brings.
This week: Just for this week, focus your attention on TODAY. Let go of the ghosts from the past. Move on. Savor each experience you have this week. At the end of each day, notice by reviewing the experiences of the day and savoring the challenges and the triumphs both. Each have something to teach you. When you live TODAY, you can learn from each experience. That is a gift to carry forward.
