The past serves as a tool for learning by the choices that we have made. It also can be a weight that holds us back if we can’t let go of either the mistakes we have made or the memories that we have. The most common thing that holds us back is a memory of a tragic circumstance or a failure that we feel responsible for. Remembering such things are not designed to hold us back, instead they are for the purpose of healing. Sometimes it takes having forgiveness for the things we have done as much as for the actions of others.
Some things are just circumstances that we could not control and we want to hold our selves at fault for them. We should remember that the past is the past and that we need to forgive and forget so we can live life instead of reliving the past.
The future is but a heartbeat away and ever illusive. It can be full of hope and dreams or it can be the worst nightmare. Most of what the future will be is decided by the choices we make here and now. We can almost predict what may come by our actions now, but other variables come into play. Such as the actions of others and unpredictable circumstances. My belief is that we should try to do our best in making our actions a positive influence on the future.
Common sense tells us that if we continue to ignore the facts and live in the disposable mentality we have that there will be a grim future left for the youth today and the children of tomorrow. Also we must start preparing for the rough weather ahead. Hurricanes are getting worse and more in number, Earthquakes are becoming more common . The earths tempature is rising due to using fossil fuels and big business polluting. It is not too late if the world will join together to change the most likely future ahead.
The present is like a jigsaw puzzle, we kind of have an idea
of what we want it to be but yet we got to constantly put
another piece in place. Sometimes we even have to try
several pieces before one fits. One thing about the present
is it is always here and never leaves us. It also goes on long
after our time is up. And as someone once told me the present
is called the present because it is the gift of life. We should enjoy
every minute of the present and the gift that it is.
To live in the present is to live life to the fullest, to live in the
past is to let life pass you by. To live in the future is like
driving while wearing binoculars. Learn from the past,
plan for the future and live for the moment.
