Just ONE at a TIME

Tell me, who does not love quotes?

Not only do quotes make great Instagram captions but they also have a way of driving home a message worth a million bucks in something as little as two sentences. Few years ago, I randomly bought a book of quotes for reasons that still remain unknown to me and sincerely the book has just been occupying mere space since its purchase.

Just the other day, as I was walking through the streets of wordpress.com stalking other people’s blog I came across a challenge on D’dream’s blog. It is called a 3 day Quote Challenge. I followed this challenge ardently and you know what, I’ve decided to give it a shot. This challenge challenged me to search through the hidden treasures of this book. I’m hopeful that I’ll find something worth sharing and also worth repeating.

“The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time”

Dean Acheeson

You all know this Adulting  thingy is not sitting well with me at all and it seems to be the underlying subject in every conversation I have with other humans nowadays. Of course, I’m super excited to be in the semi – big league, but the fact that everyone expects you to have it all figured out scares me.  Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating, or maybe I am overthinking this whole thing, but honestly what else can I do?

I have realized that the whole thing is about that great future that awaits me. I am definitely not expecting it to be picture perfect considering the amount of evidence that is splashed in everything that is around me and also quite a lot of personal experiences that seemed to have dragged my philosophy in a thousand ways. With all this going on, I  have seemed to have forgotten that I have an ah- mazing opportunity of making every day count towards this so-called  future. A wise man once said that most of us spend a lot of time dreaming (worrying) of the future, never realizing a little (of the future) arrives each day.

I would be a hypocrite to think that I’m the only one dealing with this so – called adult thingy or perhaps the uncertainty that seems to shadow the future. However, if we turn to worrying  as an escape route we will forget what it is to live one day at a time and we will be oblivious of the joy,happiness, and satisfaction that comes with living one day at a time.

Matthew 6: 34a (Amplified version)

So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Until next time,

Stop worrying,

Start living,

Stay becoming!
