Hello everyone, Today is the start of a new week. As I begin my day today I think on the many quotes out there about the ‘present’, ‘future’ and ‘past’ of things! Each quote reminding us of some important quality of each of these three words.
My thoughts today are to find …
A Place for All Three
Live in the present – today is the day you are living. The now of things!
Look to the future – the future is our hopes and our dreams, we need those!
And most especially, learn from your past.
The third one “learning from our past” is the toughie. Our personal memories as well as the history of our ancestors is filled not only with what went right, but what went very wrong. We humans tend to get “hung up” with our negative emotions there.
Do try to remember that yesterday is over but can be a positive learning experience, if we don’t dwell on what went wrong but learn on how to do things better.
By our choices each day we are a product of our own making. So it certainly makes sense to take advantage of what we (and our ancestors) have learned from the past. This gives us a more fruitful day to live in the present so that our lives will be richer (in health and happiness) tomorrow!
Incorporate each of the the three into your lives. Learn from the past, Live in the present, and Look to the future! Your choice, as always!
Have a great week!
