The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.
Just for today I’ll focus on the present moments as they come.
It is difficult to live in the present, ridiculous to live in the future, and impossible to live in the past. Nothing is as far away as one minute ago.
Choosing to live in the past or the future not only robs you of enjoyment today, it robs you of truly living. And you can’t fully appreciate today if you worry too much about tomorrow. It’s a fact that tomorrow is going to happen whether you worry about it or not.
Too often we waste present moments feeling guilty about the past or apprehensive about the future. Truth is there definitely is a past, but not now. And there definitely is a future, but not now. You can only live one moment at a time, you might as well make it the present.
Whether it's the best of times or the worst of times, it's the only time we've got.
