If we have lived long enough, we have been hurt at one time or another. If we haven’t healed those wounds or set them free, they might resurface every so often to take our mind on a tour of the past. We may feel regret or curiously ponder the "what ifs" that never will be.
Likewise we all anticipate the future sometimes. If we are worried about something coming up, we might mentally rehearse how we will handle it. Our energy is spent in anticipation, or perhaps even dread, of what might happen. Often that something never materializes.
There‘s nothing wrong with taking a careful review every now and again of lessons learned, or planning for how to get the best results regarding a future situation. But let us keep front and center this awareness: the only moment we can ever truly hold is now.
I, for one, don’t want to miss it.
May you be inspired!
