We can’t live in the past
July 12, 2021

We can’t live in the past. What’s done is done.

We can and should learn from the past. Hopefully we can treasure and celebrate it, but they’re memories. They’re not real.

Living in the past is impossible. If we try, it will make us miserable or destroy us.

We can only exist in the present.

Living for today is what’s important right now. Make a plan and act on it to make your tomorrow better than yesterday.

Spending too much time wondering “what if?”….”what if I had taken that path instead of this one? “…”what if I had done something different, would it have made a difference?” will destroy you.

The past is gone. The more time and energy we put into looking back at what could have been or should have happened, the less “here” there will be for us, now.

The future does not yet exist. All we have is now, the present, today.
