Whether it’s the best of times or the worst of times,
it’s the only time we’ve got.
It’s true the only time we have is now. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow isn’t here yet. Whether it is good or bad, today is all we have, so we might as well make the best of it.
I have pretty much accepted yesterday for what it was, some good and some bad, all just memories now. And though I think about tomorrow and make plans for the future, I know those thoughts and plans may not happen the way I want.
I have lived long enough that I now have more years in my past than I have in my future. I’m okay with that. I look forward to whatever time I have, hoping for the best of times and knowing that worst of times could happen. I have lived and learned lessons that will see me through whatever is to be. Bottom line, today is what I have and I will make the best of it.
I have life, laughter, and love today.
That’s good enough for me.

Excellent post! I Like the quote. One of my favorites is “Yesterday Is history, Tomorrow Is mystery, Today Is a gift. (Elanor Roosevelt). Thanks so much for sharing.
Thank you. I agree with Mrs. Roosevelt.
This was just what I needed to read reminding myself to stay present and appreciate what’s in my midst, not what’s to come or what came before. A hard habit but worth the effort to hone.
It is sometimes hard for me to let go of the past, usually at night when I go to bed. But every morning brings a new day with blessings to be thankful for.
In Gratitude is the best way to live. Right sizes most everything.
Beautifully said, Patricia!
So well said Patricia! E make the best of what time we have.
Just keep on keepin’ on! It’s really all we can do.
Such beautiful words and we couldn’t agree more, especially the laughter part, it keeps us going in tough times!
Laughter is what keeps everything together when it seems like all is falling apart. Some people don’t seem to get it. Sad for them.
