Spreading love, joy, peace, faith & unity

Embrace Today


If you knew today
Was your last day to be here
How would you spend it?

Lao Tzu:

“If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.”

“Respond to anger with virtue.
Deal with difficulties while they are still easy.
Handle the great while it is still small.”

Today is the day
It’s the only day we have
How will we spend it?

More from Lao Tzu:

“Your own positive future begins in this moment.
All you have is right now. Every goal is possible from here.”

Productivity
Is not always busyness
Take time to settle

When difficulties
Nag at you from every side
God is growing you

Take time to be still
Hear His gentle voice; listen
Think before flying

Caterpillar waits
Inside a tight chrysalis
Time is transforming

Embrace your today
Spend it busily waiting
For the right flight time!

Time keeps on slippin’
Slippin’ into the future
So, Carpe’ Diem!!

Embrace Today!

  1. Great question and post! The quotes are so meaningful. I think, I would either spend it one of two ways but both involve the people I love, food and good wine! Before the pandemic, I would have said staying home, watching my favourite movies with my family and friends, eating and drinking my favourtie food and wine. Now, I might say a big party doing the same things with music and dancing just to be out like that again one more time

  4. This has definitely been one of those year… doing nothing and being busy doing nothing! Well, we did not consider it nothing, did we!! Great post. Love the Steve Miller Band song. What a great hook!

  5. While I can’t fly like an eagle, my thoughts can soar with the best of them.

    Flying like an eagle
    Thinking like a beagle

    Rather be soaring high
    But only eagles really fly
