Warrior Wednesday

A Warrior Lives for Today!

The holidays are like a race way.  Days go speeding by.  You think you may have a free day and you want to make the most of it…


You find yourself thinking of the days when you would wake up and just “be.”  You find yourself happy about the sunshine, singing to yourself.  You want more days like those days!

“Forever is composed of nows.”   — Emily Dickinson

A Warrior lives for today!

Let today be the day you let go of worries.  Let today be the day you choose to be present and embrace the now.  Let today be the day that you let yourself go, get lost, slow down, and enjoy the moment.  Carpe diem!

A Warrior lives for today!

Living for today means allowing yourself to be open to the moment.  It means being aware and completely centered on the here and now.  You don’t worry about the future and you aren’t thinking about the past.  When you live in the present, you are living where life really happens.  You leave yourself vulnerable to thoughts, senses, and feelings as they come to you.  You let them be… no interpretation, no judgment.  No worries.  No distractions.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly. — Buddha

When you live in the past you are giving up personal power.  You are surrendering your power to create.

“Life is a journey, not a destination.”  — Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Warrior lives for Today!

“Be present in all things and thankful for all things.” — Maya Angelou

To live for today is simply witnessing life.  Witness your thoughts as if they are pure sound.  Don’t judge your thoughts.  Remember, we are not our thoughts.  We are much more than our thoughts.  We are children of God… who loves us and who wants what’s best for us.  This knowledge serves to quiet our fears and we can have peace knowing our design, our potential.

We can also learn from our past… not dwell on the past.  Part of mindfulness is forgiveness.  Practicing mindfulness also means we practice our awareness in all our actions… whether we are washing dishes or studying scriptures our minds is focused on that task.

“The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.”  – Thomas S. Monson

A Warrior learns from the past, prepares for the future, and lives for today!
