I understand the past and only take from it the things that will make my present more amazing.
I understand that focusing on the future and what others believe it should be is a waste of anyones time. It's finding our present moment and reveling in it that matters.
And yet, when challenged to just silence myself for once, I saw that it wasn't the past or future that were my enemies..but otherwise, my inability to shut my mind off and be in the now. Even in moments of peace and quiet, the little voice chatted on.
But with that realization and daily application to note these moments, many things surfaced. One stuck out most recently. You see, I've never been a fan of all the quotes saying that we must let go of our past. I assumed that meant I'd be letting go of my love...something I'll never do. But it hit me that I'll never have to let go of him and the love we share, but let go the life we had planned.
A simple concept, but so profound when actually applied to the mind.
Living in the love we have in the now with the who I am now and the life I live now...in the present.
