Daily Soul Quotes: “Tomorrow is today”

If you’ve been waiting for tomorrow to come, let me assure you that it never will. The time you’re looking for and the occasion you’re anticipating is presently staring you in the face. If you are trying to make a change, if you are ready to live differently, the time is now. Do yourself a favor and stop creating fantasies of a place in time that will allow for utter peace and calmness void of distraction so that you may make the moves you want, think the thoughts you have, and live the life you deserve. It’s now or never, and if you never start you never will enjoy. Do it now, do it today!
