I Don't Want To Regret Later
I wish I can know the right things to do, the right step to take, like having a sneak peep into the future to know what it needs, the kind of people who are going to be the happiest in the future, those who would be wealthier and living better in the future., I seriously wish I can know, its known that the actions of today are the results of tomorrow but we're all playing blindly, I can't ascertain if my actions today would be favorable to me tomorrow or I'll keep hoping. I can only pray and hope that my actions today are the right actions I should br taking, so when tomorrow finally comes, I'll be happy about my yesterday's deeds.
Today is a virgin ground to plant on, every seconds of the day we interact with our seeds and so our today becomes pregnant for tomorrow, and like every early stage of pregnancy we may never be able to ascertain the gender, in other words we may not know what tomorrow brings early, much until later when our tomorrow begins to draw near and we begin to see what the possible outcome of our tomorrow may be. How then do we plant right, how then can we be sure about what our pregnant today would birth forth tomorrow?
One of the greatest fear to humanity has been the fear of the unknown, what we do not is no doubt the mountain we would be faced with, in order to conquer and become victorious, the first step is knowing about it. A lot of things yet unknown can be learnt, yet some others can be learnt yet very uncertain, the uncertainty of tomorrow is on the high side, because unlike a weight lifter who knows that if he can be consistent with his daily workout routines, surely in a while there would be some evidential changes in the body, but for tomorrow, we can have faith, but there are many "What If" attached.
What if the government policies changes and affect everything one has been trying to save for some years now? What if another widespread of disease take over the country or the world at large, thereby leading to no working, low production and high consumption, leading to inflation, how then would the years of efforts be drained on high cost of living, so many what if comes on the aspect of tomorrow, and these thoughts has made many people lavish their money whenever they have a little more, as they chant "We only live once, enjoy your life".
But then tomorrow always comes and for the most part of our tomorrow it is what we sow we reap. Even the people who enjoy the moment are also faced by tomorrow and they too have got to reap what they have sowed and so like you can guess they begin to regret. If luck rarely comes then its unwise to live our lives on the bed of lucks, it may come and it may not, also since tomorrow always comes we can't live our lives like there is no tomorrow. The most secured and no doubt the best way to usher tomorrow in has been to invest into it, we plan towards its forthcoming so when it comes and we are happier.
The bible rightly advices us to consider the ants, as they gather in due time so when the season comes where they can no longer work, they have gotten enough stored up to enjoy. For these we learn that life is a combination of seasons, just as we sometimes experience the summer then we do the winter, and other variant weather climates, just as the farmers have seasons of plenty harvest and seasons of reduced outputs, same applies everywhere, times change, however not everyone would suffer, only those who didn't save up and plan better for tomorrow ends up regretting and waiting on another opportunity to do right.
I know no one would want to regret comes tomorrow, so we try our possible best to seize today. We only have now, we don't have the whole day, we don't have yesterday, we don't have tomorrow, we don't have the next hour, all we have is now, and this now we posses have that ability to earn us every other day. Our actions on now can rewrite the mistakes of yesterday thereby giving us a celebrated past, not only that the now we have also posses the ability to make tomorrow much greater and better, so now is just enough for us, act on now!
Nevertheless, we can't over work ourselves, too much pressure is not ideal and might lead to mental breakdown which if not controlled can utterly dismiss the full essence of one's struggle, as sickness and weakness can set in, thereby preventing the body from either embacking on needed actions or preventing the body from enjoying the long awaited wealth. So strike the balance, always start and end with a well drafted plan. God would continue to help us all and may be not regret in our tomorrow in Jesus Name, Amen.
