"Seeing each day as it’s own special day...but, recognizing it’s not the last day. Grabbing the most out of everyday, without losing sight of the many more days to come."
Allocating the right amount of ourselves into a single day, mindful there are more days in the future. This perspective changes over the course of our lives. The balance between the trade offs for today and tomorrow is present in all of us. Imagining our future self through the lens of any given moment is a challenge to get right.
"Getting the right amount out a particular day requires living in the now with a regard for the future..."
Freud stated we need the right mix of love and work, everywhere you turn it’s about the balancing act of something. Being able to draw the precise amount of anticipation about tomorrow from each and every moment. It’s a lifelong challenge, considering we don’t know how many tomorrow’s are in store. Assuming there are many, can make today complacent, while assuming scarcity of the future overwhelms the importance of a single second.
"Does anyone truly ever get it right...?"
The fact that the only reality we ever know and understand is our own, leaves the idea of comparison between us and anyone else a moot point. How can we get something right, where the number of possibilities is as big as the number of people. Spending time with other people delivers a sense of purpose. Spending time with the right people enhances that purpose, and satisfies something within our craving to feel alive. The deeper we dig into ourselves and others, and leave our judgements behind, the deeper our sense of belonging becomes. I don’t believe there’s much left to wonder about... #today
