Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. Og Mandino (Today is Important)
Why Today is Important
Today is important. You will not have today again. You need to treat it with respect. The people you meet need the best of you today. “But, what if I’m tired of giving my best”. That’s what makes today special, you have a choice to give your best or not.
Everyone, at some point get tired of giving their best, it’s those who choose to give their best, when less than best is easier, that makes them special.
Today you can help someone. Serve someone. Love someone. You can make someone’s today better than their yesterday and in doing so, make your today better than yesterday.
Life is cyclical. We reap what we sow. Not all harvest comes at the same time, that is why is called harvest season. If you’re worried, you’re not going to get back what you have put out, fear not today is not over and your season is not through.
Today is important for you and for others. Don’t waste today with worry and ugly thoughts. You have the power of choice. Choose to make today, and every day, better for someone else and your harvest will come quicker than you think.
