There is a place in time where your past and your future collide.
It’s called RIGHT NOW.
Everything you did or didn’t do yesterday affects where you are RIGHT NOW. Everything you do or don’t do RIGHT NOW will affect where you will be tomorrow.
You will never get back the 10 seconds it just took you to read the first few lines of this post. They are gone forever. RIGHT NOW just became BACK THEN.
The present goes by so fast that we frequently find ourselves living in the past or the future, and it isn’t productive to dwell in either place all the time. If you do, you’ll miss the opportunities right in front of you.
Take time to revisit the past, so you can learn from your mistakes and celebrate your successes. But don’t spend so much time there that you sacrifice your own future.
Take time to imagine the future, so you can create strategies and plans to make your dreams come true. But don’t spend so much time there that you never take an actual, practical step in that direction.
Don’t neglect the time you are spending on RIGHT NOW.
You may be surprised by the beauty of the moment.
