What are your plans for this weekend?
What are your plans for this summer?
What are your plans for future?
We all have heard and answered these questions from time to time but tell me, How often do we get asked, What are you going to do today?
I bet the frequency is far less than that of the first three questions.
That is it! That is where we go wrong. We get so involved in planning that we actually forget to do what we had planned earlier.
I know most of us already know about this but sometimes a word from someone else actually helps to put things into perspective. If you too feel that someone needs to read this, please do share by all means.
Read to know…know to read
We make a mistake every day in our lives,
One which we realise when we read the archives,
Investing all in a day which hasn’t even come,
Slow down dear reader, enjoy the drive.
Plan for future but don’t let go of today,
Time is tricky, it simply passes away,
So before you invest in something uncertain,
Read what Today is trying to say.
Enjoy a laugh with family or with a friend,
Complete that book all the way till the end,
Write down what you feel needs to be penned, Or
Do all that you wished to before the time is spend.
Try and do something you have never done,
Something new and artistic, be it serious or fun,
Be thankful for the day that you have received,
I did what I wanted to, now it is your turn.
