One Day at a Time
“Slow down and learn to take life one day at a time”. – Nick Sullivan
What does that mean?
We live in a very fast-paced society. We want things done quick, fast, and in a hurry.
We are constantly thinking about the future, everything we need to do, and everything we wish we could have done.
What if this wasn’t the right way to live our lives?
We need to stop getting so caught up in what tomorrow will bring and the regrets of yesterday so we can focus on what is great today.
Worrying about the future leads to anxiety and worrying about the past leads to depression.
Anxiety is caused by constantly thinking about everything that could happen or go wrong in the future. If we focus on today, and take life one day at a time then it allows us to enjoy what we have and focus on what we are doing today.
Depression is often caused by looking back and thinking about the opportunities we have missed and mistakes we have made. If we focus on today then we can make the most of the opportunities we have today and focus making the best possible decisions presented to us each day.
We should take time each day to be thankful for what we have. Each day is a gift and should be treated and appreciated as such.
