Tomorrows become Yesterdays

It’s been said, “Time flies when you are having fun”… it also flies when you are scratching and clawing to get to the next day, week, or month; before you know it, a new year begins in our hamster wheel of life. We live our lives either coming out of something or racing to our aspirations; it’s as if we either live our lives in the past, filled with regrets, or we are fixated with hopes for the future. We forget the in between moments of our lives; in the blink of an eye, our tomorrows become yesterdays.

I was reminded of this when I received an early morning phone call the other day telling me my neighbor’s 15 year old daughter had ended her own life- 5,677 days prior her parents were celebrating her arrival into this world; now no more tomorrows only yesterdays.

Death has a way of reminding us to live in between the two dates; we all have something in common, we were born and we will all die. The uncommon part of our lives is the dash in between those two dates. Don’t let your past arrest your future; don’t race for a future without learning from your past and don’t ever forget the precious in between moments in the meantime.
