Make Today Count

Make Today Count

SOLOMON Witherspoon shares how you need to make today count, because you might not have tomorrow.

“We are not promised tomorrow.”

I have learned to appreciate this quote more and more over the years. Within a few short years, I lost a brother and sister to senseless murders. Since that time, each day of my life becomes more meaningful and special.

Life is about being in the moment and appreciating today since we don’t know if there will be another. I find inspiration as I reflect upon the memories of my sister Sharon and brother Samuel as a big part of me lives for them every single day. Don’t delay your life today. Be right here, right now.

Family Love

Growing up in a family of ten, my amazing mother and stern preacher-man daddy taught us to maintain a strong, respectful, and genuine love for God and each other. Families inspire life’s essential connections and support systems.

I cherish my wife, daughter, and son as they inspire me each and every day with their unconditional love. My family is always there for me and I always try to be available for, and loving to them. They help ignite my inspiration and remind me of who I truly am and what is truly important in life.

Completion

My father used to say, “Once a task is begun, never leave it until it’s done, be thy labor great or small, do it well or not at all”. I set my mind to always do the very best I can. No matter what the circumstances are, just do your best to persevere until you reach your goal or accomplish tasks.

Believe in your mission, see the light at the end of the tunnel, and do it as positively as possible as you see it to completion. Inspire yourself to get it done and you will be inspired to complete more!…Continue reading at InspireMeToday.com.

Still working on the Completion - too many projects, both started and ready to start.

thanks

in addition to all other ways to possibly help:
from Yogananda:
"It’s good to have a vision of the future, but don’t harass the soul with petty worries. God is in charge of planets, stars—everything that you see, yet He is never disturbed. Do your best today and forget tomorrow. God will take care of everything.

To increase your capacity for work always think that you are doing God’s work. Each day ask yourself: “What can I do for God today?” God is always busy, creating universes upon universes, yet He is never tired. If we want to be like Him, we must have His tremendous capacity for activity.

If you learn to control the life force through the practice of meditation and spiritual exercises, your mind and vital powers will be under your control. Calm nerves, controlled bodily energy, and a well-regulated moral life usually accompany mental calmness."

One of the octogenarians in my church says -- "every day that you wake up on this side of the grass is a good day!" (He always a smile on his face!)

My father who was in War War II often spoke of the many young men who didn't survive the war, and no matter how difficult his life became (and it got very grim for him at times as his health deteriorated) he repeatedly said things could always be worse .... He taught me to be grateful for every day and try to do something for someone every day ... Even a simple phone call to cheer up someone who is home bound can make a difference.

So I wish you all a happy day!

Give thanks to whatever it is that put us here for each and every day. Don't take it for granted since your time could be up at any moment. Respect, love and really like yourself and you'll never have trouble finding a friend. I have never met a strange and enjoy my own company. All my family have passed on but I never feel alone.
