Sometimes we get so bombarded overs things in our past that we forget to live in the NOW.
We have to constantly stop dwelling on the past. It's gone, we can't change it and it won't come back to us... maybe that's not such a bad thing that the past can't come back.
Focusing about our future is great, don't get me wrong, but what's even better is doing things now for YOUR FUTURE.
We have to live in the present moment.
We need to take every moment we get and embrace it. Whether it's good or bad, we have to simply live in it fully.
We create our own destiny and future with what we are doing right now. We only use our past as a guide, a point of reference (I've blogged about this before) not as a destination.
Our past helps us to get to where we want to be, but right NOW, this present moment and time shows us who we are.
Be in the now and the knowing, right now. The more you think of the past, even the future the more you're not concentrating on what is currently in front of you.
