The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day a time.
~ Abraham Lincoln ~
Abraham Lincoln did great things for the United States. He took life One Day at a time. He broke the future into manageable pieces. We can do the same. We can live in the present and focus on the task at hand. Spirituality comes when we focus this way. When we stay in the present we find choice. And we worry less about the future. Still, we must have goals.
We must plan for the future. Goals and plans help us give more credit to the present than to the future. And when we feel good about the present, we feel good about the future.
Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power, help me focus. Help me keep my energy in the present. Have me live life One Day at a Time.
Action for the Day:
When I find myself drifting into the future, I’ll work at bring myself back to the present.
