I came across this poem at a really wonderful memorial service recently and wanted to share it so you can read it and use it to re-focus on the important things in your world this week.

Look to this day
for it is life
the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all
the realities and truths of existence
the joy of growth
the splendour of action
the glory of power.
For yesterday is but a memory
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived
makes every yesterday a memory of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.

– ancient Sanscrit poem –
