Today.

“Let go of dead yesterdays and unborn tomorrows.
The load of tomorrow, added to that of yesterday, carried today, makes the strongest falter.”

Yesterday I read those words.

They hit at a time where I was struggling to find words to encourage a friend because I too was hanging on to both dead yesterdays and unborn tomorrows. I was living not in the present, but in this in-between where both were being weighed against one another and loading me down.

I don’t know about you all but I bypass today. I look to tomorrow, the to-do list that didn’t get done yesterday, and the fret begins. I am always hanging on to past regrets, mistakes, faults to drag them to my tomorrows that always seem to have anxiety and worry attached preemptively.

It’s hard to live in today, as much as we want to do just that. So I leave those words above simply because I struggle with the exact same thing-even in this moment as I weigh thoughts and actions.
