The best decision I ever made was to start to live in the present.
I used to be the type of person who would live in the past, then become overwhelmed with regret or fear. Other times, when I looked toward the future, I missed out on all the significant events in my life. Or if I aimed for a goal and missed, I would be stuck in a hole of despair and misery. I was stuck wasting my life in depression, as opposed to truly living my life.
Now, I’m able to appreciate everything I encounter. I am able to appreciate all the people in my life. I am able to smile and look forward to each day that comes my way, because I can live in the moment and enjoy everything in the moment, as opposed to mentally being somewhere else.
