While sitting together talking in the 100 Acre Wood, Winnie the Pooh asks Christopher Robin, “What day is it?” To which Christopher Robin replies, “Today.” It’s a simple, yet powerful answer. It is indeed today and it needs to be cherished and treasured for all the adventures it holds. No one is guaranteed tomorrow. Right now, we have today and we need to embrace it. When you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, you begin to think more about your today’s than ever before. You realize that the regular ordinary things and people of today are the things that truly matter.
I’m not saying that you need to live each day as if it’s your last one but what if you at least thought about what you would do differently if it was? Would you take that trip you’ve been meaning to take? Would you spend more time just hanging out with your friends and family? Would you forgive someone who hurt you just because it’s the right thing to do? Would you make time to do something fun just for yourself? How about tackling something new that you thought you never could do but you always want to try? Even if you’ve never had cancer or faced a life threatening illness, please take the time to think about this question….What will you do with TODAY?
