A Quote to live by

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Commitment

This is a quote that I live by not only as a Realtor, but also as a mother and a friend: Today is the most important day of my life. Yesterday with its successes and victories, struggles and failures is gone forever. The past is past. Done. Finished. I cannot relive it. I cannot go back and change it. But I will learn from it and improve my Today. Today. This moment. NOW. It is God's gift to me and it's all that I have. Tomorrow with all its joy and sorrows, triumphs and troubles isn't here yet. Indeed, tomorrow may never come. Therefore, I will not worry about tomorrow. Today is what God has entrusted to me. It is all that I have. I will do my best in it. I will demonstrate the best of me in it- my character, giftedness, and abilities- to my family and friends, clients and associates. I will identify those things that are most important to do Today, and those things I will do until they are done. And when this day is done I will look back with satisfaction at that which I have accomplished.

Michelle, great quote.  You are right in that you cannot change what is done or in the past, but you can certainly learn and grow from it.

Great quote.  You're right.. we can't change the past and will deal with tomorrow when it gets here.  Our focus needs to be on today for today is the time in our life that we can control by the decisions we make and actions we take.

If only more people would follow such great advice, the world would be a better place.

It's wonderful day when you wake up in the morning.

There's a lot of inspiration and motivation in that quote, Michelle. The most powerful part for me is "It is God's gift to me" ... what an awesome present!
