The following quote, from Abraham Hicks, is from his Daily Affirmations.
People say. “If I’m always setting goals and reaching for the future, then am I not squandering my now?” And we say if in your now you’re using a future event to make you feel good, you are still feeling good in your now. And that’s the best use of now that you could ever find.

Well, yay for Abraham. He writes a question for which I’d appreciate an answer. Abraham teaches me to draw happiness to my life, a goal to which I am as faithful as is possible, for me. So my question is, and has often been, how can I plan a better life without losing the attention I pay to today.
What’s really important here is this: in my past, I have drawn as much or more sadness to myself than I could ever say. That’s my past, where I felt always afraid of doing the wrong thing. Now, as long as I stay on my path, and continue pulling in contentment with every breath, I can believe the happiness I feel now will be there for me to build on, when tomorrow becomes today.
Satisfaction is mine, a gift from the Cosmos, no matter what I’ve done or said or wished on anyone. I have forgiven myself, and I am sure that the future cares for itself. And when tomorrow becomes today, I will use Abraham’s Law of Attraction to gather joy to my heart, knowing that feeling great today is the best way to feel great tomorrow.
Like begets like.
