“Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.” –Audrey Hepburn

There’s stuff we have to do today. And there’s stuff we had to do yesterday. And there will be stuff to be done tomorrow.

And the hanging on to what did or didn’t, will or won’t get done is a terrible day to waste.

We get the chance every day to ask ourself, “Am I a human DOING, or a human BEING?”

No doubt, we will interact with lots of other folks in the course of our day. And it’s been said that people will forget what you say, and they’ll forget what you do. But they’ll never forget how you make them feel.

Do you feel present, and in the present, for yourself and others?

Often, simply stopping for a moment and identifying the mind chatter that has us either back then or over there can serve to get us right here. And that can be very refreshing!

You can sigh that again!

Got refreshments?

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” –Jim Rohn
