Today, not tomorrow

Thank you for visiting my blog. 

Yesterday I had a thought for a post,  I hope you will let me know your thoughts. = David


Today, not tomorrow

Today I can begin.  Today, not tomorrow

I start today to be better. Today, not tomorrow

Today, I will forgive you. Today, not tomorrow

Today I will tell you are important, and you are special. Today I will tell you I want you to be safe, to be happy, to be healthy.  Today, not tomorrow

Today I will be kind to myself, I will judge myself with kindness. Today I will let go of grudges, I will be accepting.  Today, not tomorrow

Today I will plant a seed. A seed of love, of life, of living

Today, not tomorrow.

I begin now, a life without regret.

Now, not later.

  1. If there had been a ‘love it’ button instead of ‘like’, I’d have hit it at least 6 times!

  6. ‘THE NOW’ is God’s gift to us.
    That is why it is called ‘the present’. 😁

    That is beautiful David, ” Today I will plant a Seed”, that is what it is all about. I loved your post yesterday also. Your parents were like my Grandparents. There isn’t anything they could not make or build when they put there mind to it. We had very little growing up, but we never knew it. Life was so full and still is by living the simple life for me. Wonderful words today.

    Such wise words here David. Too often, we put off things we hope to change, only to find it’s too late. Thank you for this reminder 💕

    Well said! After beeing home (more or less) for so long I find it harder and harder to get motivated. Maybe today, not tomorrow 😉
