Tri Cities and Beyond: Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today.

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today.

This is the type of message we all need to hear once in awhile.  Bill tells us the story is daughter told him last night that really boils down to, we need to live our lives to the fullest and make every minute count.  Thanks Bill for reminding us how precious and short life is.

We have only today.Last night while talking to my daughter she told me of a sad story about a friend of hers, a thirty year old man, who passed away a month ago from a brain tumor.

Thirty years old! He had barely begun life as an adult, hardly seen life through grown-up eyes. It is a tragedy that we can all relate to, and if we wish, one we can all learn from.

When sad events like these happen, as they are bound to, they should serve as a wake-up call to us; they are a call to action that we can use as motivation to get things done!

This is to remind everyone to go out today and seize the day! Life is short. It has been compared to a vapor, a wisp of air and with good reason.

If you don't know it, you need to wake up from the illusion you're under, and realize that life is fleeting! It will pass you by without a care if you let it.

Therefore, we must make the most of every opportunity life presents us and strive to be the best we can be, no matter if it's cleaning toilets or selling real estate. BE GREAT!

Are you familiar with the term 'Carpe Diem'?

That little Latin phrase means simply, Seize the Day! Poets of old had a view of life that was different than that of everybody else. Instead of slogging through each day as if it were a miserable thing to be alive, poets saw then, and still do today, that life is a wondrous thing!

They wanted to “Suck the marrow out of life.” They wanted to live every experience they could with as much passion as was possible. To live, love, and be involved in things dearest to their hearts!

The legacy they leave is for us to do the same. Therefore, I urge each person to live TODAY and each day as if it were his last, his final chance to do something great, his last chance to be amazing!

Thought for today: Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.

Seize your day!
