What Today Offers

If you were given a choice of trading in today for an opportunity to relive a day from your past, would you do it?  The only condition is that you can only visit the day exactly as you lived it and you are not allowed to change anything.  It's an interesting question, isn't it?  Maybe you're thinking of loved ones who are no longer here or you're looking at the highlight reels in your mind from your favorite memories and you feel your past is calling out to you.  Although the question is tempting, for me, the price is too high.  I would never trade in today for a yesterday.  Here's why:
  1. Today is filled with new opportunities.
  2. There are new people to meet today.
  3. Today is a blank canvas.  I get to choose what colors to use and what picture to paint. 
Don't let your past incarcerate you.  The loved ones you miss are all cheering for you to make the most of this day.  They want you to live it to its fullest potential.  I believe they are waiting for you and you will see them again once your work here is done.  Don't trade away this day.  Go out and live it up.  Make this day your best day ever.

If you have a moment, please share what you are looking forward to about this day in the comments section below.
