BOISE, Idaho, December 29, 2011 — All too often we work ourselves to the bone today, expecting that tomorrow will be better. Tomorrow we’ll have more money, more time, more enjoyment. Today we’ll just get by.
Here are ten reasons to live for today.
- Tomorrow may never come. You don’t know what tomorrow will bring. You only have today. Take advantage of it.
- You’re worth it. You don’t need anybody to tell you that you can walk your own path. You owe it to yourself to do it for yourself.
- If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.
- It’s not about getting a chance, it’s about taking a chance.
- You are limited only by your own imagination. Let it fly.
- Your instincts can be trusted. Don’t allow society’s demands to hold you back. Trust yourself.
- The only mistake that can truly hurt you is choosing to do nothing simply because you’re too scared to make a mistake.
- Do what you love, not what you think you’re supposed to do. Go ahead. It’s
- Enjoy your journey! You’ve only got one chance at this thing called life. Enjoy it while you can.
- Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain. Go dance in the rain today.
