Yesterday is history – living life is intended for today and tomorrow.
Learn from the past – however do not live in the past. Yesterday is a story lost to the bards of history. They will sing their songs of glory and fable. The mythic songs of chopped Cherry Trees will evolve and deteriorate until fact and fiction become difficult to tell apart. Yesterdays true personal value, lies in what lessons you have learned and that you have survived those trials, tribulations and victories you have engaged on the road of life. Yesterday is for learning, sharing and starting the roots and foundations to nurture future generations. Let the minstrels of today sing the tunes of yesterday in remembrance. But never let their Siren Songs keep your eyes blinded. For foundations confined to yesterdays roots have no place to grow. Their narrowed foundation weakens the strength of the structure of life it supports. Let yesterday fertilize today for tomorrow’s birth.
The circumstances of yesterday “may” define who you were, but it does not contractually obligate what path your roots choose to follow today. Today’s path is determined by the footsteps your tendrils seek now. Choose to ignore the land-marked quagmires of yesterday and your tendrils may become embedded in the quicksand, never allowing your Yggdrasil to be develop. Choose to root inside those mires of yesterday and your tree of life will eventually crumble to the ground and be lost to future archeologists, seeking to understand your choices. Today must balance the lessons of yesterday to guide the roots of today towards a solid foundation seeking nutrition while hoping to feed tomorrows existence by planting the seeds of the future.
Yesterday we learned, so we could live today and hopefully we may reap the harvest of tomorrow. Yet, tomorrow is promised to no one. Even the strongest, most vigorous life may be slain by disease, disaster or times erosion. Our yesterdays continue to fade away replaced by today seeking to seed tomorrow. Tomorrow is merely Gods promise that the seeds of life suitably nurtured by yesterday and today – continues on with or without your Earthly gardening during the day-to-night night-to-day sunrise to sunset cycle. Yesterday was for learning, sing the songs. Today is for living, vine today’s roots into solid foundations for tomorrow is left to the seeds we will have sown during our yesterday. It is the balance of life.
Happy New Year to All
