The importance of Today

"What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it"

I read this quote and was thinking about it for a long time. We all know life is not endless and the no of days in it are very much limited. Still why do we pretend as if it is unlimited and so much time is left to do all we love to do? Most of the time we dream of some imaginary point in future when we have sorted out all our issues and problems to start "living"!

Earlier in the day, I was doing some case studies and came across innumerable real life stories of people in their 20's and 30's or even younger who fell prey to diseases like Alzheimer’s/Dementia/Cancer and what not.. Some  of them struggled and came out victorious, some succumbed, some still waiting for help.. And again another note from one of those patients that strike a chord with me is "Those of us with Alzheimer’s are better off looking at what we have left… not obsessing about that we have lost". And I guess it's true for all of us. Life throws you surprises, in all possible ways, whether you like it or not. So why wait until you are shaken up to live your life?
Start today, remember it will never come again...

We are constantly tied down by our worries of the future while failing to realise today is the future we were thinking of yesterday. .
