Chapter 8, Page 4, Book 21




The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.

Abraham Lincoln


August 4th - We can do most anything for just one day





If people took it a day at a time, theyd be a lot happier.

Richard Bachman

Too often we worry about the future about what tomorrow might bring and we think about the past, what we did and what we should have done differently  We waste precious time that we have right now when we worry about what is to come ore regret what might have been.

It’s not easy to be mindful about living in the present and not worry so much about the future or harping about the past.

We live in a world where everything happens at such a fast pace.  Every this on the go. But the truth is we all go through life at our own pace, with our own timing.  We’re all different so we need to stop comparing our selves to others 

We can be worrying so much about the future or regret what happened in the psst.  We can plan for the future, but not worry about it.  It’s not worth the time and energy.  It’s all about living here in this moment and time.  One day at a time is all we’re ever guaranteed of and one that we can be sure of.

I’m hopeful and optimizing that by my doing my best today, keeping positive and living one day at a time can, each day will be a good one.

Living one day at a time is the best way to live. Living in the moment is focusing your attention and time on what is happening right now, wherever you are.  The only thing we have control over is today Focus on what is going on around you  We should savor every day.

All that’s required is to live today fully as if it were your first or your last.



Live one day at a time and make it a masterpiece.

Dale West

There is no better time to be in than the present .

This reminds me of something my Life History writing teacher once said:
"Custer probably would have won the battle had the Indians come over the hill one at a time."

No use trying to change the past and none of our business what the future holds. I try hard to stay in the near and now but sometimes it is hard.
