“We Have No Idea What Tomorrow Will Bring,
But Today Is Overflowing With Potential.”
— Allan Lokos
We have a tendency to look forward to something, many things, things being better, an event that is coming, loved ones arriving, things being done as we would like, and at the specified time. That’s all good. We need things to draw us, and our anticipation is often exciting.
Yet, as we do that, it is all too easy to think of today as simply a stepping stone on the path to tomorrow, or to that time we are looking forward to. This would be a good definition of wasting time.
As we become more aware of our life as a journey and that the real value is in fully living the moments as they come, regardless of what they contain, that awareness leads us to a joyful life, by in-joying ourselves and all that is going on in and around us.
That’s the life I am coming so much closer to living. Eyes wide open, seeing what I want to see, feel what I want to feel, enjoying anticipation but not being carried off with it.
