Just a little something to think about today.
Most of the human race lives in any time but the present.
We walk around talking and thinking about what happened – before now.
• What someone did to us
• how we blew an interview
• how we hurt someone
• what we “should have done” in a certain situation
Or……….we talk and think about “one day…………”
• we think “one day I will have the home I want”, rather than trying to make our existing home a comforting and welcoming place.
• we work so many hours so that one day we can spend time with our families. Meanwhile, our children grow up and leave home. By the time we have time they are gone.
This is not to say our past cannot help us to learn. Sometimes we need to remember things so that we do not repeat painful mistakes.
We may need to think of our future to the point that we don’t behave recklessly.
There is nothing wrong with avoiding painful relationships because of what we have learned. There is nothing wrong with saving up money for a house.
But really the only thing we have fore certain, 100% of the time, without fail, is the moment we are in now. What are you doing with your moment?
