To quote Darius Rucker, “When was the last time you did something for the first time”.
Every day, I experience that day for the first time. The past doesn't matter, I can't change that. The future hasn't happened yet. I still have a chance to influence it, but it's not a part of me yet. The here and now has arrived and I am hn it for the first time. Today is a blank slate and I can write my story on it any way I want.
