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!

Hi Nick - I don't know how/why but I missed this post when you originally published it this week but thanks to Kathy Streib and her weekly round-up, I fortunately found it today.  And that makes it a good day.  Maybe even a favorite.  Definitely smile-worthy.   Have a good one.

Well said Nick! I am often guilty of living in the past, or worrying about tomorrow! Thanks for the reminder to focus on today

faye schubert explore each day to discover what you don't know and be open to discoveries.

Michael Jacobs I know you know this and live it.

Kat Palmiotti I think you have grapsed this with your move to Montana, those views are wonderful.

I think we all are guilty from time to time, so it is good to remind ourselves of living in the moment Tom Bailey

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR I am living each day at full tilt when I can, and resting on days when I can't. But living in the moment is the best thing I have learned over the past year.

Endre Barath, Jr. I have started a meditation practice which I do before I get up, set my intentions for the day and think about being present. I am not perfect, but finding it is helping.

People are always saying that "the time has gone so quickly." We can't believe a baby is now 10 years old, we can't believe that our favorite restaurant closed 4 years ago, or that trip to Europe was 6 years ago, etc.

It has long been my belief that time goes quickly because we're not paying attention. We not treating "today" like our favorite day. I've been trying to do just that but a reminder is always welcome!

Margaret Goss I need a reminder daily, which is why I am really grateful for my daily mindfulness reading/reminder.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 isn't it great, a true classic that lives on.
