The concept “Live only in today; don’t worry about tomorrow,” is a fine ambition, we may think, but what does it mean? “Living in today” means dealing only with what is at hand now and the available courses of action.
If we are worrying about matters in the past or future, or out of our realm, we can disengage ourselves from them.
We cannot bend the world to our will. Am I learning to fit myself to the world?
Lord, help me remember to conquer myself, not the world. Today I will practice adapting myself to whatever happens by…breathing!
