What day is it?

"What day is it?" said Piglet.

"Why, it's today," said Pooh, "my very favourite kind of day."

I was given a great little book, that reminds me each day to be mindful, it is filled with quotes about this day, all from very different people, authors, singers, speakers, fictional characters, etc.

Today, I read the one above, first it made me laugh, then I thought about it and realized, today is the only day we have. Something I know and have a quote about on my wall.

Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is the future, Today is the present. Live it!

But it is so easy to get caught up and forget it, worrying about the future, or feeling guilty or upset about something from the past.

We only have today, and we shouldn't waste it worrying or regretting things from the past. You can take action, offer an apology and move on. You can make a plan for the future, but don't waste today or this moment being somewhere else when you really need to be where you are. Because, that is where you are right now. Give your attention to what you are doing, or the people you are with and enjoy them because that is all you have right now.

By the way, I read a book sometinme back the Tao of Pooh, which was very good and worth a read.

Enjoy your day, I am, it is my favourite kind of day!

Bob "RealMan" Timm I usually read books to my kids and grand kids and Pooh was always a favourite.

Norma J. Elkins that is very true, but we all allow ourselves to get knocked off track sometimes.

Love the article. It encapsulates what we should be doing instead of dwelling on the past and worried about the future.

Life is TOO Short, so enjoy the present.

It's kind of like saying the moment is eternal. I believe there is a book called The Tao of Pooh. Pooh is wise.

Jeff Dowler, CRS very true, but starting the day with thinking about things to be grateful for is a big help.

BIPIN CHANDRIANI welcome to Active Rain, and yes we should do the things we want to do first.

There is Joe Pryor and it is full of similar wisdom.
