“Just Today” Image preview

Tomorrow is not yours to live
You can only live today.
Yesterday is over
And has quietly slipped away.
Today is the only time you have
To plan, work and succeed.
You can’t borrow from the future
If additional time you need.
There are only sixty seconds
In each minute that you use.
And there are only sixty seconds
In each minute you abuse.
So leave the past behind you,
For your yesterdays are gone.
Tomorrow is not promised.
Today is all you own.
Don’t worry about the problems
That fate may bring your way.
Just make the world a better place,
Because you lived today.
By Helen J. Goodwin, Ph.D.
