What does it really mean to live in the present only? It means to enjoy the time you have right now and not focusing on the past or worrying about the future.
Is There Even A Tomorrow?
There is a saying that says, “Tomorrow never comes.” Tomorrow is only a concept and is always waiting to come around the corner. When you think about it, there really isn’t a tomorrow because when ‘tomorrow’ comes it becomes ‘today’ and when it passes it becomes ‘yesterday’.
Did you know that you are giving up your personal power when you live in the past or in the future? You are giving up on your life. It is like this movie I watched when I was a child called, “Click” with Adam Sandler. His character literally wished his life away because he wanted to so badly get to the future. He missed out on life and did not enjoy the present moment.
Why Not Living In The Present Is Bad
By not living in the present, you are surrendering your power to create and to transform your life for the better. If there were changes you wanted to make in your life, you can only do that in the present. Keep in mind that the ONLY part of your life that you have ANY control over is the present…not the past and most definitely not the future.
You are accepting life as you know it now and no longer wishing to go back and change the past when you live in the present. How often do we beat ourselves up over things we did in the past no matter how much time has passed? I know I have and yet there is nothing I can do to change those mistakes. When you live in the present, you are now able to forgive yourself completely and can have peace in your heart knowing that everything that should happen will happen.
Your mind is the only thing that is keeping you from living in the present, not your surrounding circumstances. So its time to change that!
