“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”- Lord Buddha
Have you contemplated what living in the present time means? The ability to focus on what your entity means in the current time is what you must gauge to live in the present. You totally are the present’s individual when you forget about the bygones or stop worrying over what the future entails. The future is only part of imaginations. You never know what it would unfold in the next years. Tomorrow merely lies in the shadows and the light is yet to illumine the shades. It is only today that you stand a chance of knowing how time is.
The present—A life changer
We know that unless we live in the present time, we are only living a dream—an illusion! Instead of wasting time thinking how life could have been, it is essential that you focus on understanding how to make the best of life. Past guilt and mistakes often batter your present life for simply surfacing as reminders of the time gone past. Instead of crying over split milk or trying to make castles in the air, you need to effectively drive your energies and efforts into rendering happiness to yourself and your immediate relations.
“If you worry about what might be, and wonder what might have been, you will ignore what is.”
When the metal stress in terms of worrying over what is expected get strong, it results in effects on the physical being. Mental stress takes barely sometime to translate into issues with your health.
“Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future” – Audrey Hepburn
Learn from your mistakes and take inspiration from your desires but while doing all this—make sure you have your feet firm on the ground—in the present. Live life now, for now and plan things so that your present gets more beautiful. Remember—life takes time to bloom but takes hardly a day to fade.
