Live for Today

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther

This is how we should live life. This echos the sentiments of carpe diem, living for today. It seems to take it a step further in that regardless of knowing for a fact that tomorrow disaster will strike, a person still chooses to live today. I think that is why it is better to live in the moment and not to worry too much over the on goings of tomorrow. Of course there any many things that we plan on. We plan birthday parties, vacations, graduations, and retirements. I do not think we should stop doing those things; however, do not get so caught up at it stops you from taking action today. Do not let tomorrows worries stop you from enjoying life today. If you plant that tree (or seed) who is to know that it will not survive? In this came what will happen tomorrow may be known but because of our ability to survive and overcome adversity how we react to this is not known. The bottom line is not to give up on yourself no matter what. Live for today while not giving up on tomorrow.
