Pursuing life and work with urgency and intention

May we inspire each other to live, love, and dream boldly!

Today

 Today.  What are you going to do with it?

Today.  What are you going to do with it?

Today.  

Right here.  Right now.  What am I going to do with it?  Am I going to treat it like any other day?  I have been given a variety of experiences that allow today to be uniquely rewarding, if I let it be.

Yesterday.  

I got it right.  I nailed it.  I accomplished everything that I had intended and more.  I checked boxes, found personal satisfaction, and achieved success.  However, this is far from what my every day looks like. 

While the accomplishments of yesterday are important, I will not rest on their merit.  Perhaps, I have done this to a fault.  I have walled off past achievements as if they are of no current significance.   Moving forward, I will do a better job at celebrating my accomplishments as testament to the hard work put in.   I have worked hard and that work has taught me innumerable lessons.  It has tested my resolve and it has stretched me way beyond the borders of anything that I thought was possible.    

Yesterday can, also, be painful.  I have lamented over follies of yesterday.  Still, no matter what happened- there is nothing that I can do to change it.  I would like to say that I did the best that I could do in that moment, but as long as I am being honest- sometimes I have not brought my best.  For this, I can beat myself up about it.  I can drag remorse through today, into tomorrow, and so on.  Or I can forgive myself, appreciate my inexperience, and learn lessons that help me moving forward.  The important thing is to move forward.  Sometimes it is hard to see the lesson and I may not get it perfect the next time either.  However, as long as I am making progress, I can accept progress.  Making the same mistakes over and over again or allowing a poor decision to consume everything else is not okay.  Ultimately, I believe that everything will work out and it is important to keep yesterday in its proper context.  

Tomorrow

I can’t wait to meet you, but first- today!
