 Let's talk about Today.

“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced,” Søren Kierkegaard once wrote.

We may not always enjoy this reality, not always look forward to it, but it’s still one to be experienced. That’s the task given to us Today. 

"Make the now, the primary focus of your life.” That’s from Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now.
