So every day, and usually many times a day, I say quietly to myself: Today is not tomorrow.
Our current circumstances—no matter how grim or painful—is not a life sentence.
It’s not even a “day” sentence, unless we allow it to be.
Each dawn announces an opportunity for new progress, for new moments, new strength.
Setbacks do not discriminate. They happen to the nicest people. To the strongest guy in the gym. To the seemingly happiest couple. To you.
But they are [often] only temporary. Bodies heal. Hearts mend. Careers turn around. Though not by themselves. And not if you believe today will be tomorrow, if you let today prevent you from taking the steps—baby steps, if that’s all you can take—toward a renewed tomorrow.
I heard someone say today that a setback is just an opportunity for a comeback. Now that’s a tomorrow to believe in.
See, I set before you this day life and prosperity, death and adversity… choose life.
