“What day is it?”
‘It’s today,’ squeaked Piglet.
‘My favorite day,’ said Pooh.”
― A.A. Milne
The answer is a little crude, so I’ll let you figure it out.
Staying in the day, rather than regretting the past or worrying about the future, is an acquired skill, at least it is for me. It takes commitment, energy, and, most of all, practice, but the effort is really worth it. Time spent in regret or worry usually amounts to little good. Focusing on the present brings a peace of mind that this recovering individual has never known.
What’s happened, happened. What might happen either will or won’t, but worrying about it won’t change the outcome, and it’s not happening right now. There’s something within arm’s reach that can be enjoyed this very instant, so go do it!
My 10-year old son wants to try out for a solo piece in his chorus. After trying and discarding several songs (mostly due to his not knowing the words), we settled on Amazing Grace, and rehearsed it before school. Is there a better way to start the day than hearing a 10-year old boy singing Amazing Grace with all his heart and soul?
