Today is a gift

Sometimes we just want to rush things, especially when we know something good is about to happen.... "Vacation is coming in a few months, the semester will be over soon, graduation is almost here" and on and on and on.... these are all very exciting and can be life changing, it's hard not to want them to come RIGHT NOW... but wanting them to come now won't make it happen, no matter how many stars you wish upon. When I have something exciting coming up, I try to keep my mind busy so as not to become overly anxious about it. It's not easy trying to stop thinking of my vacation coming up in a few months, but I have more important things to think about right now, like college and my job.... I try to take things one day at a time, and not think of what the future might have in store for me, because I cannot predict or change the future, so why worry so much about it? What's important is right now, and in order to guarantee a good future, I need to make sure I'm doing things right today.... As "Master Oogway" said in Kung Fu Panda....
"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present."
