This Moment Is The Beginning of The Rest of Your Life

“A great future doesn’t require a great past.” – William Chapman

This moment is the beginning of the rest of your life.

What was in your yesterday that you’re dragging with you into today? We all carry broken pieces of our past into our present, but is it possible to move into a better future?

For whatever reason, a morbid thought came to mind today: pursuing my childhood dreams of playing professional sports are out of reach. I’m 33. Guys my age are winding down their careers, not beginning them. That dream is gone. Am I good enough to play? Heck no! Would I like to pursue that dream? Absolutely! Can I? No…

Those dreams belong to yesterday. Yet, what lies ahead is still yet to be created.

Maybe I talk too much about “creating the future”, but the thought simply haunts me too much to toss it to the side…We are creating the future with each moment we live and breathe! As the Scriptures teach, “you reap what you sow”. What grows tomorrow was planted today.

One of my greatest weaknesses is dwelling on what I lost yesterday, missing the opportunities in the here and now.

This moment is the beginning of the rest of your life.

This moment is the beginning of who you become next.

This moment – yes, this one – is where you choose what future you will create.
