Jennifer needs to learn to live - SCENARIO:
Craig and Jennifer are really close friends. They grow up together in San Diego, California. Craig is a guy who lives in the moment. He is outgoing, funny and adventurous. He enjoys every bit of his life. Craig loves skydiving, swimming and being goofy. Jennifer is a young lady who takes situations to seriously. She doesn't live her life to the fullest. She always thinking about the past. Jennifer is very timid, smart and shy but she loves reading, watching crime stories and singing. Craig and Jennifer has been roommates every since they graduated from high school.
One day Craig is packing his things to go hiking and he sees Jennifer on the couch in the livingroom reading her book. Craig immediately stops what he was doing and slowly walks over to Jennifer and asks, "hey, Jen do you want to go hiking with me? I mean, this is going to be fun. You should go." Jennifer stops reading and looks up at Craig and replies back, "Craig, I would go but its dangerous and plus I remembered when my Dad took me hiking and we seen a huge snake and all those bugs. I think, I will stay home and read." Craig walks away and continue packing so he can leave. Jennifer watches Craig as he is gathering his things. Before Craig leaves out the door he tells Jennifer, "look Jen, you have to learn how to live for today and stop thinking about the past because tomorrow is not promise to you and yesterday is your past. I hope you realize that someday. I will be back in a couple of days. Talk to you later." Jennifer didn't say anything back to Craig she just stares at Craig as he is leaving and then continues to read.
Days goes by and Jennifer is doing the same routine day in and day out. Hours later Craig walks in the door and he is seeing Jennifer doing the same thing she was doing when he left. Craig asks Jennifer, "Jen, how was your couple of days?" Jennifer stops reading and says, "it was good, you know reading and catching up on some things." Craig shakes his head and walks in his bedroom and puts his things down. As he was putting his things down he feels a need to speak with Jennifer. He walks back in the livingroom and says, "Jennifer, can we talk." Jennifer stops reading her book and looks at Craig. Craig sits down beside Jennifer and says, "Jen, I have been knowing you for years and I know you had a rough past but you have to learn how to let your past go and live. As long as you are awake and you can see today, you have to live for today. Yesterday is your past and you can't change that. Today is the day for change. You have to get off your a** and live. You have to live your moment." Craig is getting very emotional and starts to cry. Jennifer is very emotional as well. She knows that Craig truly loves her and he wouldn't say anything to hurt her. Jennifer replies back crying, "Craig, I know you love and care for me and it's hard to live for the moment and all I can do is think about my past. I want to live and find change but its hard. I don't know how to live for the moment or for today." Craig completely understands Jennifer and he wraps his arms around her and says, "its time for change." Jennifer replies back and says, "yes it is."
The following day Craig walks in the livingroom and notices that Jennifer was not in the living room reading or watching TV. He walks all over the house but still doesn't see Jennifer. He is getting worried because this is not Jennifer. All of a sudden, he hears a noise. Craig follows the noise to the garage and notices Jennifer is singing. She hasn't sung in a long time ever since she was 10 years old. Craig opens the door to the garage and asks Jennifer, "what are you doing?" Jennifer stops singing and smiles to say, "I am living for today. I am making a change. By the way, I am performing tonight at Sling Nightclub, so you better be there." Jennifer smiles and continues to practice her song. Craig smiles back and walks in the garage, takes a sit and listen to Jennifer sing her heart away.
“Live for Today” is a call to arms, if you will, a reminder to let go of excessive planning, of collecting and hoarding of material possessions and of spending less time thinking (or rather, worrying) about tomorrow and more time planning for experiences we know will bring us immense happiness today.
It means simply living a truly great day that's in line with everything you want out of life, and that includes health, financial stability, good relationships, and everything else. Go out there and live for today.
How Do You Live in the Moment?
*Remove unneeded possessions. Minimalism forces you to live in the present. ...
*Fully appreciate the moments of today..
*Forgive past hurts..
*Love your job..
*Dream about the future, but work hard today..
*Don't dwell on past accomplishments..
You have to learn how to let the past go. The past is yesterday. Once yesterday is gone there is nothing you can do to change it. What you can do is live for today. You have to enjoy the TODAY and live your moment. Here you go...yesterday is your past, today is your day and tomorrow is your future but tomorrow is never promise to you. LIVE FOR TODAY...
