If you want to live in the moment, you must do these two things:
You must stop worrying about your past. Your past is your past. You can’t forget your past, but you can learn from it. You can use your past to create a better future for yourself. Jim Rohn said, “Take time to gather up the past so that you will be able to to draw from your experiences and invest in the future.” Let your past be your teacher.
The only thing you can do with your past is to learn from it. Your past is your history. Read it every day to learn more about yourself, where you have been, and where you are going. You need your past to navigate your future. C. S. Lewis said, “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” He is right. You can’t live in the past, but you can live in the moment.
You must stop worrying about the future. Why are you worrying about your future when you have this moment to enjoy? Everything is happening right now, don’t miss it. James Allen said, ” All things are possible now, and only now.” If you want to know what you are doing and where you are going, now is your reality.
