This Day Will Never Come Again

Yesterday I discovered the Sounds True Blog and Tami Simon's podcast interviews with authors and teachers.
Her posts as well as her interviews are excellent and thought provoking, and I just wish I had the time to listen to all the interviews non-stop, but fortunately I do not have that time, or my head would surely explode!
The episode I just finished listening to is the interview with Carolyn Myss in which Dr. Myss quotes Thomas Merton, Trappist monk and author, as saying "This day will never come again". I heard it and froze for a moment. Of course it is an obvious truth, but one of those truths that can change your life when you truly hear it and believe it.
I wonder what it would be like if it were my first thought in the morning, and if I were to remind myself of it throughout the day, like a mantra?

It's good to be reminded of these truths ~ so often we carry on through the days without stopping to reflect on them. I hope all's well. You look cute with your black pencil whiskers!
