It’s an insightful way to consider the actions and decisions you take today.  We like to think we can direct our futures, and to an extent, that’s true.  But any guarantee is a myth. Thinking you can control the randomness of the future is an illusion.

But there is one guarantee:  Each action you take does becomes an ineditable, unchangeable fact of your past.  You must identify with it for the rest of your days.  It becomes part of a moving picture you compile moment by moment, day by day, frame by frame.

When you reach the point where more days lie behind you than lay ahead, what do you want as your legacy, your testament?  Now, while you can, build yourself a past that will give you pride and peace, and not sorry and regret.
