Many of us think about our past, and it goes on to affect our lives. it's more than just the consequences of our actions, we let the past bring us down. And once we think about a certain memory, many more unpleasant memories come rushing in. We even spend countless hours imagining when we will get our vindication or even vengeance from past hurts. But what we don't realize is that today, is tomorrow's yesterday which is our past. By dwelling on the past, our present is wasted. And by wasting the present we are just adding on to our wasted past. And down a spiral we go.
Others rather than thinking about the past think about the future. We spend our time sitting there thinking about the "what ifs" but what about the "what now"? Yes it's great to have goals, but to have goals and achieve them, you need to do something about that today. To have a better tomorrow is to have a better today. Our actions of the present will affect our future, whether it be in a good way or a bad way. But to waste your time today by thinking about tomorrow is to waste the opportunity to improve your tomorrow.
So let's not worry about our past or about our future. But lets live in the now. To live life is to live in the present moment. The past is dead and the future is yet unborn. And the key to healing the past and having a hopeful future lies in the present. In what you will decide to do now. Not what you did yesterday, not what you will do tomorrow, but what you are doing now. Now is the only thing we really have. If you waste the present moment by dwelling on the past or thinking about the future, you end up loosing everything, because your present becomes your past.
Just a few hours of thinking about the past or the future, is a few hours you will never get back. Spend your time wisely by thinking about the now and making decisions that will shape your future. But the past, completely forget about that. What's done is done. Now is what matters.
Today is where we are,
