this day and that day

There are only two days that matter… this day and that day. I want to live my life in this day in a way that I will not have regrets on that day.

-Martin Luther-

How are you living your life?

I was listening to a speaker today and that was a quote he used in the message. I want to live my life this way. Too often, people (especially young people, myself included) wish away the time and place they are in. They miss the importance of where they are wanting to be another place. The whole grass is greener on the other side philosophy. A friend of mine always says in response to that, “well, you gotta mow the other side too.”

My life is in a slight holding pattern. I am finishing school and training waiting for next season. I do not need to wish away the time here though. As much as I would rather live in a nicer place, see my friends a bit more, spend time with family, or get to play soccer somewhere else, I will be living in the present and investing here. So I am headed to study for my comprehensive exam, work for the soccer team, watch film in the office, train, lift, run, go to class, teach my class, do my group project, and know that someday in the distant future I’ll have time to sleep.

Maybe this is why it is hard studying for my comprehensive exams to complete my Master’s Degree. Hindsight… study more. This is for all you struggling students.
