  1. Today. A strange word. Today I woke up empty, alone and hurting. That’s how everyday was, but today was different. Today marked the day that it happened, today was a day I feared. Tomorrow couldn’t come faster but tomorrow never came, it was always today. Even the sky felt different…

  2. Today is a bridge between yesterday and tomorrow. Today is what I have – what we have – to live, to use, to deal with. Today is what I/we make of it. I love today because of its life, its challenge, its part in emergence, evolution. I love today because it emphasizes the irrelevance of time; the present is mine/ours. The past is platform; the future is made of today.

  3. Today was going to be different, I thought. But I knew it wasn’t. Everyday I say that to myself in hopes of becoming a better person and doing something with my life. Today is not one of those days. Im for sure of it. Maybe if I work extra hard Ill actually accomplish something. Yeah right like I, out of all people, would accomplish something. Maybe Ill just sleep the day off…

  4. Today sounds like a celebratory word. It’s as if you were toasting—To [the] day! Rightfully so, since each day brings something new—sometimes good, other times not so good. It may be full of challenges or disappointments; happiness or sadness; new adventures or unforeseen disasters. Whatever the outcome, it’s ours to make the best of whatever situation comes our way.
