Today......

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Today is the day you take charge of your life and decide it will be great! Today is the day that you stop waiting for other people to make you happy and lean on them to decide what your day will hold....

Today is the day you say "this is MY LIFE and I am going to make it a great day".

Today is the day you notice people around you that are hurting and reach out to them for once instead of ignoring them because you are "busy". Today is the day you help someone in need. Today is the day you quit just thinking about your needs and you instead fill a need. Today is the day you give a hug just because. Only to find that is all that that person really wanted.

Today is the day you smile no matter what the devil throws your way. Knowing that though things may not be what you want them to be right now you know that the promises of God are eternal. That the calling of God on your life is without repentance. That He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it. Today is the day you stop holding grudges and instead you let forgiveness rule in your heart. Today is the day you stop trying to measure up to others expectations and realize that God has already approved of you as you already are.

Today is the day you have been waiting for all your life. A day that is filled with laughter and tears of joy. A day that you spend living in the moment and not living for what is to come. Today is the day you are present everywhere you go. Not just present in body and absent in mind.

Today you will find that the dishes will always be there.....laundry will pile up by the days end....the pressing things that you once thought were pressing now just don't seem as important as the people that eat off of those plates...the people that fill those clothes...Instead of giving all your attention to things you will give attention to people instead.

Today is the day that when you lay down you won't feel like it is another day wasted. Today will be the day that you lay down knowing that you impacted a life only to realize the one you impacted the most was your own.......

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.....What are you going to do with it?

I love it Crystal! Today IS the best day of our lives. I love my life and I remind myself on a daily basis that it isn't all about me(I thought it was.LOL). It's about being a blessing to others and all it takes IS just a hug OR A BIG CHOCOLATE CAKE!
Have a most wonderful day.
BLESSINGS!
