Have you noticed how your mind tends to replay past experiences over and over? Do you sometimes focus on the future and become so racked with fear thinking something bad might happen? I’m sure you have experienced both: worrying about the things that can go wrong or regretting the past. Neither of these thoughts will bring you peace and serenity.
There is no Time Like the Present.
Mark Twain said, “I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.” These words hold great wisdom; the wisdom of knowing that there is no sense worrying about the past or fearing the future. Your past will not change, and your future concerns may never come.
Many people spend a great deal of time and energy thinking about past problems and future concerns while the present is passing them by. Remember the here and now is a gift, which is why they call it the ‘present’. Treat it like a present, enjoy it to the fullest and make the most of it.
Don’t let your life pass you by, focus on the present and enjoy today!
