The Future is 'Now'

The quality of your journey is a clue to your destination. If you don't feel satisfaction, fulfillment and pride in what you do today, then where are you heading to in the future?

The future is NOW. It is made on what you do and how you feel about yourself today.

If you don't find happiness in what you do today, then the destination clearly holds the promise of misery in the future. If you aren't honest today, how will your lies serve you in the future? If you aren't in love with what you do, then frustration waits for you wrapped under layers of achievement that don't matter.

If money was not the objective, are you happy with what you do? are you happy with who you have become? are you proud of yourself and your work? If not, then 'check engine' light is ON, indicating for you to take a good look at your life and where you are headed. It would be a disaster to arrive at the end of life's journey only to realize this is not the destination you had in mind.

Today is the future of yesterday. If today is not where you had wanted to be, your future dreams will be ever elusive as they are in your present.

The future is NOW. Do what makes you happy. Take your time and do that what brings out the best in you, that makes you smile, that makes you special, that makes your purpose a service to others. Isn't that what you had in mind in the first place, before it got infected with what other people think and want from you?

Your life is slipping into the past daily. Today and tomorrow are all you have. If today is a life well lived, the future can't but be a consequential honor of your purpose.

Well... Welcome back to your blog page Ms. Sarah.
Now also it contains your pic. with "License To Live" in background and here also you shared the very same message which this book holds in it. i.e. in words of Jade : "Tomorrow is the very first day of rest of your life"
Really its important to live in present else we are living in this blue planet illegally without any "License To Live" :)
