Your actions today are helping to create your future, but only to a point.
Over 7.5 billion other people are taking actions today which will directly or indirectly have an impact on your future. So even the best decisions and most diligent discipline will be limited in its effect.
However, there is one sure-fire thing you can create today that will affect you and those you love for a lifetime and that is you can create tomorrow’s memories.
This easier said than done and requires planning, intentionality, and a little dash of spontaneity.
Try to recall how many real memories you have.
If memory is any indication, it’s as if we’ve never existed most days of our lives.
But oh those special memories! They delight us and encourage us for the rest of our lives.
The ONE THING for today: Don’t just live today, create a memory. Be intentional about saying something and doing something that brings a smile to your face and warms your heart for the rest of your life. (And remember, shared memories are the best memories.)
