I woke up today, just like yesterday and the day before that. Nothing unusual. Everyone wakes up; everyday. Nothing great happening there. But, now that we’re talking about it, you do wake up everyday. You wake up everyday and could be anywhere, anyone or anything. But, you’re the same person at the same place that you were yesterday. Slept yesterday and woke up today. Simple, right? Now, here’s something I was thinking. Are you really the same person you were yesterday? How can you be sure?
Everytime you sleep, you are ending a day of your life in the hope to wake up to a new day. But, it’s just hope. You actually end your life everyday and start it the next day. You are what you are now. You are not what you were yesterday and most definitely not what you will be tomorrow or after that. The only thing that connects you to yesterday is the memories you have of it and the memories the people have of you. If it wasn’t for these memories, it is as simple as dying everyday and being born the next. Even with these, it doesn’t make much of a difference. You still cannot live in yesterday or tomorrow.
So, in case you are busy thinking about your past or working too hard for your future, you’re clearly missing the point. You are spending your time thinking about a completely different person. You are who you are now. It wasn’t you yesterday and it will not be you tomorrow. But it is you today. You can remember yesterday and dream about tomorrow, but today is all that you have to live.
