How To Be Happy: Live For Today

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” ~Unknown

I decided to write a poem for this one.

Today is more than just the day

to finish what wasn’t done yesterday.

It’s not something we’re entitled to,

but it’s something given to experience and to do

those things that matter the most

because there’s no knowing when we’ll give up the ghost.

Use this day

to smile, laugh and play

to spread joy and love 

and please the Father above. 

It’s good to plan, but if plans fall through

don’t give up; choose to make do

You’ve been given a beautiful today

love it, appreciate it, don’t let it get away

without enjoying the minutes in special ways

enjoy the gift that is today.
