Living for Today
We so ofter live for the future -- making plans, making our to-do lists, thinking through various scenarios of what might happen (disastrous or joyful), worrying, anticipating, dreading . . . We spend so much of our time out of the present time.
Remember that person who was worrying, anticipating, dreading, or hoping yesterday, yestermonth, yesteryear? Well, that person is still you, and this is the future that you were thinking about. Yep, the future is now.
So, how about if we honor that little worrywart from the past and live our best lives right now? It would be the best thing we could do for our past self, and would do wonders for our current self.
For you see, when we live in the present, we gift our future selves with a little less fear and a lot more joy. Let's try it!
