1 Foot in Yesterday, 1 Foot in Tomorrow, and Ya Piss on Today!

Oh Dog! DeDe here with this week’s tip to make you look and feel your best!

Don’t waste today worrying about yesterday or tomorrow.

I have a confession to make: I am having a hard time with Jen. Seems she’s all worried about what’s going to happen to me.

Silly human! If she spends all her time worrying about tomorrow, she’s going to miss today! And today, I’m still here!

Truth is, we have nothing but what is in this very instant.

What happened a moment ago is history.

What will happen in the next moment is the future.

Spending our time worrying about those two causes us to miss what is now.

Bubba and I are enjoying a moment scavenging for crumbs!

So ya want to look and feel your best? Then enjoy what is today, and let tomorrow sort itself out.

And make sure you face today with that essential beauty product- a smile!Β

  1. Mom’s favorite radio station always says this and we love it: Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that is why we call it the present. A great way to think about life, sort of like us dogs think. It is hard for humans but they would be happier if they could do that.

  2. DeDE, I just love you. Today you have well and truly inspired me. Humans have a hard time with the life for today, enjoy the moment thing. She worries about you and I and others who love you, are concerned. But I am making you my SMILE role model. Live in the moment, look for crumbs, and smile – the most beautiful beauty accessory. Stay strong dear heart.

  3. Hey DeDe! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Look at the smiles you put on our faces! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ They are especially for you – because you are AWESOME!! πŸ™‚ What you said is so true! One should always live in the here and now instead of worrying about the future! Bless your cute little heart, sweety! All the best to you! ❀

  4. A lovely post De De and you are so very right, why worry about tomorrow when who knows what it will bring for us? Yesterday has gone and we survived it, today is now and we are doing okay, tomorrow is, well who knows what tomorrow will be?

  5. You’re absolutely right DeDe and living in the moment is the very BEST way to live…..besides, you have a whole lot more living and loving to do so GO FOR IT GIRL! Every time I see your smile I am reminded that life is good if we just smile and carry on.

    Love you DeDe

  6. Dear DeDe, I love you, I really love you and admire you so much. You’re very brave lady dog and always encourage us with your great advice. I’m so happy that I can see your lovely pictures and read your wonderful post at this very moment! Awwww…DeDe…Thank you very much for being here!!! Hugs hugs xxxxx

  7. I had a 80 year-old volunteer who would say every day he came in, “Every day is a good day”! He did that until he was 90 and loved life, his friends, family, animals… I live by that example and thank you for helping me remember him today and during some tough times.

  8. very true yet at times hard to follow . When I walk Fredrieka she is suppose to keep her head up and walk forward. I suppose that is what we do one step at a time

  9. You are SO right DeDe ! Live in the moment and for the moment.
    Enjoy what is happening now.That’s how memories are made πŸ™‚
    We purr you have many more todays!

  10. No matter whether you are unhappy about yesterday or worried about tomorrow, you are always squarely set in today and only what you do today can influence how you feel about yesterday and tomorrow..

  11. You are so right DeDe! We should always remember that. I am praying that you will have plenty of ‘tomorrows’ to come. Bless you. xoxoxo

  12. Awesome DeDe. You would be the “cat’s meow” if you were a cat. Instead your are “Dog Knows Best”! I am just blown away at your post and I can feel love for you growing even more by leaps and bounds all over the internet. Hugs all around from us.

  13. DeDe you are a very smart dog. Thank you for reminding us to live in the moment and to treasure it. We send you and your Mom big hugs. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

  14. ahhhh…DeDe…how ever did you become so very wise precious girl? What is ‘now’ is what ‘is’…you are so very clever and right…and right now…I am smiling at you and Bubba cleaning Jen’s floor…*giggle*

  15. Dear DeDe,
    You’re an angel! I’m sure dear Jen knows what to do, but sometimes it is good to lose yourself a little, but on one condition! We should be keeping it for a short while, just to get the negative energy out of the system.
    Then the sun will rise again.
    You are very clever and beautiful.
    May you be healthy and happy πŸ™‚
    Kisses and Hugs
    Yelloz and Servant Z.

  16. DeDe the wise and wonderful. Big hugs and smiles. May the new year be bright and wonderful for us all, but yes, today is great….except Molly should stop staring at the squirrel in the palm tree – he’ll out wait her…the German has already wandered off for a nap.
    HUGS DeDe for keeping all on track with what’s important
