Live In the Present
What is present? It is a gift that has been given to us by the universe to make the most of it. Right now is what we have. Right now is what we need to live for. It is very easy to mistake our present for our future in many ways. Our present does not always reflect our future. The world is an unpredictable place. You may not know what will happen in the next minute. Why waste your present for something you have no clue about?
What is past? A disposed used gift. We are done with that gift. We have used it to its full potential and got the most of it, be it good or bad. The bottom line is, we are over with it and its time to move on. Our past should not affect our present. To make a beautiful present, we must learn to let go of the past and live in the present. Like old clothes, toys, books, etc. we should forget about the past happenings and concentrate and enjoy the present happenings. The past is not worth ruining your new gift make the present better than your past.
What is future? A gift we do not know of. There is no point in striving for something we do not know of. However, working hard for something we love will surely pay off in the future. We do not want to be in a future where looking back we may regret as to why we did not live that moment. Live a life you love for a better and peaceful future. Tomorrow is not stable and present is not forever.
However, living in the present does not always mean living recklessly and ditching our responsibilities. Everyone has some kind of responsibly towards their families, friends, the environment, etc. Of course, we cannot run away from our duties, but we can always learn to balance our duties with our life. Life is not part of the duties; duties are a part of our life. Our life is our own to design. We cannot, in anyway, let our burdens design our life. Our actions create or erase burdens. We have the ability to make those burdens disappear with our actions, which are acceptable. Always make sure to have a healthy present and not to corrupt it.
Present life is something we can change. We are sad because someone left us, change that. Do something we love and that will make us happy. We sometimes want to go through grief, which is acceptable, but it is upon us that how long we want to prolong it. We have the power to change our present, which in turn can shape our future. But always modify the present by enjoying it. Again, what we have here, right now, is a gift. Love it, enjoy it, adore it and make it grow because you only live once. We are the masters of our present. It is our life, our rules. Period.
