“If you want to take care of tomorrow, take better care of today.”
Today’s message from Author Dainin Katagiri is one that reminds us that we must be present and take care of the here and now if we are wanting to take care of tomorrow. Often times we look ahead instead of looking at what lies right in front of us. This can lead to missing out on some things that will have a direct impact on our future plans. The decisions we make today affect our decisions for tomorrow.
There is a quote that I think helps put things into better perspective and the importance for us to live life in the present moment and why deciding to do so is such a crucial decision that we must all make:
Life is available only in the present moment. If you abandon the present moment you cannot live the moments of your daily life deeply.
Thich Nhat Hanh
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your responsible decision making skills?
