You live today filled with yesterday, Living in the past, I wonder when you will let go? Is it possible for you ? Those old photographs are beautiful, but they are of so many years gone by yet you hold on to them as if they were taken just yesterday. Your old fingers, holding on to snapshots of your youth. What do you want me to say as you show them to me?
Yes, you were beautiful then, so long ago. But what about now? I did not know you then. I only know you now.
What about today? We’ve used up today looking back at your yesterday. What about now?
I live my today for tomorrow, for me there is no yesterday, there’s only tomorrow. But what about now? What about today? I’ve used up my today dreaming about tomorrow. What about now?
We know together that yesterday is gone and tomorrow has not arrived, but what about now? What about today? What about this moment?
...And at this exact moment, arrives the Answer from a friend:
Subject: The Time Is Now
Hi Florence, This just about sums it up.
The Time Is Now
Now is the time to act. Now is the time to live. Now is when you can make a difference. Now is when you can bring your intentions to life.
In this moment you can choose to step forward. And when this day is over, you will already have made important progress.
Everything you need to take that first step is available to you now. It is now up to you to make use of the opportunity.
There is no limit to what you can accomplish when you put your effort and commitment into it. Now is the time to make the commitment and to begin the effort.
You have a dream, a vision of how truly fulfilling life can be. Now is the time to make it real. -- Ralph Marston
See? You're already fulfilling your dream and your destiny.
