Mindfulness… Just for today

This poem, call Just for Today, was shared with me, and it made me stop and think, so I thought I’d share it with you too. It really is about Mindfulness, and being in the moment, which is something many of us struggle with. I might be able to help with that if you’re one of those people.

by Che von Lindbergh, 2006

Today I will delete from my diary
two days: yesterday and tomorrow
Yesterday was to learn
and tomorrow will be the consequence
of what I can do today.

Today I will face life
with the conviction that this day
will not ever return.

Today is the last opportunity
I have to live intensely,
as no one can assure me
that I will see tomorrow’s sunrise.

Today I will be brave enough
not to let any opportunity pass me by,
my only alternative is to succeed

Today I will invest
my most valuable resource: my time,
in the most trascendental work:
my life;

I will spend each minute
passionately to make
of today a different
and unique day in my life.

Today I will defy every obstacle
that appears on my way trusting
I will succeed.

Today I will resist
pessimism and will conquer
the world with a smile,
with the positive attitude
of expecting always the best.

Today I will make of every ordinary task a sublime expression,

Today I will have my feet on the ground
understanding reality
and the stars’ gaze
to invent my future.

Today I will take the time to be happy
and will leave my footprints and my presence
in the hearts of others.

Today, I invite you to begin a new season
where we can dream
that everything we undertake is possible
and we fulfil it,
with joy and dignity.
