how little, yesterday matters today.
There was a day that happened that you called your worst. There were days where you were brought so low, you could not imagine a time when your life would be graced again by sunshine and there was that one time, a moment so dark you even reached for prayer.
But the wheel turned.
Yesterday you broke your promise. Yesterday you were not the best version of yourself. Yesterday you worked too hard on this, not hard enough on that. Yesterday you ate what you ought not to have, and you didn’t drink enough water. Yesterday you forgot your gratitudes and you rushed through moments that asked you to be present. Yesterday you fretted over things beyond your control and you spoke when you should have listened. Yesterday you hardened in your heart when you should have made space for Forgiveness. Yesterday you were wrapped up in your bullshit and the smallness of life and you missed the opportunity to be kind.
We are not stranded and adrift in the river of time. We are right here, in this impossible bright moment we call Now.
Today is brand new. And everyone who wronged you also had a Yesterday. We get to make amends today; we get to be more present, more patient, more grateful. Today, we get to Forgive, we get to be Vulnerable, we get to Choose. We get to connect with Meaning. Today, we get to Understand.
Today you can be brand new; a new Choice, a new Stance.
We are after all, who we repeatedly choose to be.
Make today count.
“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again , come , come.” - Rumi
