Being grateful for the present makes us able to fully experience life’s best moments.
American Cleric Henry Ward Beecher once said, “No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy the sunlight today, mix good cheer with friends today, enjoy it and bless God for it. Do not look back on happiness- or dream of it in the future. you are only sure of today; do not let yourself be cheated out of it.
Regretting the past and dreading the future: There are no more two sure ways to destroy today’s blessings.so instead say to yourself:
“This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Holy Bible, Psalm 119:24
