Today is a very important day, why? Because it is happening to you right now. What are doing today? What are you going to do today? What have you done today? Depending upon how and when you ask them, these questions can have multiple different answers for the same person, and don’t even get me started on other people.

People sometimes forget the importance of today and sometimes people can take today too seriously; confused? Let me explain myself.

For those who forget about the importance of today, there are some people who only think about the future, either worrying about what will happen in the future or who just keep making plans for the future. They seem to forget about today, they forget to enjoy today even though it is happening now; the future is in the future, you have no idea what is going to happen and you can’t experience it until it comes to you and by then it will become today. So enjoy today, make your plans for the future if you want but don’t forget about today.

Now for those who take today too seriously, we all know that what happens today will influence what happens tomorrow and what happens after that, but some people think about their actions today way too much. The worry and worry so much that they end up not doing anything and let the entire day go by. And sometimes, let’s say you have a really bad day, you woke up late, you’re out of milk and you can’t make breakfast, your car broke down, it’s raining cats and dogs, your umbrella is broken, every car that is passing you is hitting a puddle and splashing you, you reach work late, your boss shouts at you for being late, scolds you for your wet attire, tells you to get your life together and then saddles you with a week’s worth of work and tells you he needs it done today; and on top of all of that your office computer won’t start. Basically nothing is going your way and it feels like the entire world is conspiring against you. When that happens then you just have to remember that today is just another day, it’s a small part of a long journey called life and life has its ups and downs. Today may have been a bad day but not all days can be bad days, it is statistically impossible! So don’t focus on today and look forward to tomorrow because tomorrow is another day.

I will end by saying: don’t take today at face value while going through it. Live today, experience it and hold your judgement for today until today is over, that is how I think you should live today but that is just me.
