Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow is the future, but today is a gift. That is why we call it the present.
During the brief time that we are given on earth, our personal experiences shape who we are today and we can choose to dwell on the past, or instead we can make peace with it. We cannot undo our set-backs, but we are able to make our future more meaningful than yesterday. We cannot control all things, and life may even have its own plans, but by recognizing that our life is a gift is truly the first step in knowing that our lives are so worth living.
