We as humans, (some more than others) are so focused on our future that we actually forget to live in the moment. Don’t get me wrong, our future is everything & I’m not making light of that, but 20 or even 10 years from now, looking back we’re going to regret it. We’re always counting down the days to something – summer, falling madly in love, next month, next year etc. Why not just live our lives day to day and enjoy the little things? You will never truly know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory (been there, done that). It is said that true happiness will be achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of “right now.” It’s so true – “what screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it’s supposed to be.”
We (I especially) need to stop living in our (my) head and start living in the moment.
So, lets all make a pact to stop analyzing the past, stop planning for the future, stop trying to figure out how we feel, stop trying to pinpoint exactly what we want, and just see what happens.
After all, life is a beautiful mystery and what fun would it be to know everything leading up to the end?
“We waste so many days waiting for the weekend, so many nights wanting morning. Our lust for future comfort is the biggest thief of life.”
