Today is a day worth living well

Today, I wanted to share a piece recently provided by a friend.  This Sanskrit Proverb speaks very well about the value and beauty of each new day.  It is the Sanskrit version of “today could be our very best day yet!”  It is true, that this is the only day we are promised and nothing we do tomorrow can bring today back.  Today might determine our future success, our future happiness, or our future fate.  For sure, what we do today will only be a memory tomorrow.  Today might be the day that makes our year a successful one.  What do you plan to do today to make it a great day, either for you or someone else?


Look to this day:

For it is life, the very life of life.

In its brief course

Lie all the verities and realities of your existence.

The bliss of growth,

The glory of action,

The splendor of achievement

Are but experiences of time.


For yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is only a vision;

And today well-lived, makes

Yesterday a dream of happiness

And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well therefore to this day;

Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!

                   – Sanskrit Proverb –


Use today well.  Do something to make this day special for someone else.  Try something unexpected today.  And, if tomorrow comes, let’s try it again.  Have a great one!
