If we look hard enough, we can usually find a life lesson or something positive in each day. Unfortunately, these lessons and positives often go unnoticed. And when they are acknowledged, it may only be for that day. Therefore, they remain in the past.
This quote, by the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, reminds us to “light tomorrow with today.” In other words, to create a brighter tomorrow by not only acknowledging the lessons and positives from today, but also carrying them forward to the next.
Imagine your life a week from now or a year from now if you were to make an effort to do this each day? Now that’s one way to grow wiser! But beyond that, your life, perspectives, and thought processes will hopefully improve over time.
