Sometimes inspiration comes from the most unexpected places. In South Africa we have car guards that watch our cars while we shop because we have such a high crime rate. It is expected to give them money for watching your car, even if you were only away from it for 5 minutes. One morning while returning with my shopping, I realised I did not have money for the car guard and apologised to him for not giving him anything that day. And he gave me this piece of wisdom: “It’s ok madam, days are not the same”
That stuck with me ever since. Today I am on the top of the world, I have money and have everything my heart needs. But tomorrow it might be different and I have nothing, nothing in my pockets and nothing to give. Because days are not the same. You might be riding the wave of success today, but none of us are fortune tellers that know exactly what lies ahead of us tomorrow, we can plan and dream and make sure we are prepared, but we can never know for sure.
Because days are not the same. Enjoy the day you have today, doesn’t matter if you are on the top of the hill or down at the bottom. Because tomorrow it might be different. None of us are getting out of here alive. Make the most of what you have for this day, this moment.
Blessed be to everyone.
