Forget about the past and future, live in the present!

I have come across a lot of people dwelling in the past. They carry the burden of their past. Be it the death of someone close to them or some breakdown in life, they always think about those things that made them unhappy, miserable and sad in the past. They have made their life an extension of the past. Are you one among them? Do you carry the burden of your past?

Similarly, I have seen people living a life of misery and anxiety; it may be about a job; it may be about a child’s education; it may be about studies; it may be about owning a house or it may be about a daughter’s marriage. They are scared of the future.

So, what happens when you regret the past? You think about all the wrongs and you feel sad. What happens when you start thinking too much about the future? You think about all the unforeseen dangers and fear comes along. You feel unhappy. Even though thinking about both brings only unhappiness, you keep shuffling between the two. Regretting the past and fearing the future, you forget to live the present moment.

Forget about them both. Live in the present moment. Wipe out the past and throw your worries about the future out of the door. Live in the ‘NOW’, in this moment, with joy and happiness.

 

Never worry about the Past, it brings Tears. Don’t think too much about the Future, it brings Fears. Live in the Present Moment with a Smile, it brings Cheers!!  ~ RVM
