To create a future you love you have to be in the present…to grow each day, do the best you can right now and to be open to the possibilities as you make choices, not for five, ten or fifteen years hence but today.
To live in the past is to be so wrapped up in the “what was” that you lose sight of what you’re experiencing in the present. To be so focused on the ‘what might be one day’, is to miss all the opportunities that will fall in your lap if you were only paying attention. Besides which, who knows what tomorrow might bring? Best laid plans can be tossed to the wind as a new path appears before you. That path might be the one you were meant to take after all.
Enjoy the journey.
