Reflections – A boat called Today

February 24, 2011

With the year flowing by, it’s not difficult to think the boat has been missed. After all, January has sailed off into the sunset and February is nearly over the horizon.

At the start of every year many plans are made regarding how we intent to use our time and what we hope to achieve over the course of the coming year. With two months almost gone, we might wish to dwell today on what hasn’t been accomplished yet.

Some opportunities may indeed have been lost, perhaps because we were too slow in getting ready for them. Yet let’s not forget there is another boat waiting for us, one called Today.

Entering Today we can begin our journey, be it of exploration, achievement, self awareness, or whatever else we want from life. The journey might not take us far physically, yet there will surely still be much to discover once we start looking at this moment.

When we link up with Today all becomes possible once more. Some of us may already mentally work on the basis of a scholastic year, beginning anew each September. Others might have religious or cultural calendars which, likewise, don’t begin in January.

If we choose so, we can use Today as the vehicle for getting started now. Alternatively, we could give up on this year, believing the boat really has been missed, and wait for 2012.

It naturally comes down to a question of choice. Personally, I’m going with the boat called Today.

Thanks for spending a part of your time today reading this. As ever, I’m curious to hear your input so please feel free to leave a comment below.

Bon Voyage!
