Again

Allison Nazarian Living Life, One Word

Today you woke up and you started all over again.

No matter what happened yesterday.

Or didn’t happen yesterday.

Or who was not nice to you, or what didn’t get done, or how behind you were. Who hurt you or how awesome you were.

It isn’t yesterday. It won’t ever be yesterday again.

Yesterday may have sucked. Or maybe it was grand.

Either way, today is new. Again. But only for today.

I don’t know what will happen today. It may be one of those great days. It may not be. Either way, by tomorrow it will be yesterday.

Today is either incredibly important or it doesn’t matter at all. I don’t know. No one does. Not even those positive-affirmation-always-having-the-best-day-ever people who seem to be online all the time. They don’t know either. Don’t look to them to shape your today. They aren’t you. They don’t have your today. They know nothing about your today.

Today is all there is. Does that mean you give everything you you have, right now, to today?

I don’t know the answer. And even if I thought I did (which I once thought I did but not longer thing I do), that isn’t for me to tell you.

It’s your today. Not mine. Not theirs. Only you. Yours.

Then, tomorrow, today will be all there is for you. Again.

And again.
