Oh gosh…I’ve been hearing this a lot of late…and frankly, I’ve got to say I don’t care if it does or doesn’t…what good will it do me to worry about what will happen in two years when I could get hit by a bus tomorrow?
I like to live in the NOW…it’s the only moment in time I actually have any control over. Think about it…can you change what happened two seconds ago? Nope, sorry it’s happened, you did or said whatever you did or said…you can’t change history, not even history that happened only two seconds ago! Can you predict the future and what will happen? Some people can, but most of us can’t…and those who can see the future will tell you they see only “possible” paths you can take. So, you can’t really make changes if you haven’t decided your fated path now can you? Can you decided right now to stop reading these words? YES! Right now in this moment you can control everything…you can read more, you can decide to stop reading and stand up or burst into song…NOW is the only time we can control in our lives.
LIFE IS IN THE MOMENT…we have no life in the past, its past and we have no life in the future either because it hasn’t happened yet. We only have life in the NOW.
Sorry for getting into the quantum physics of time with you, but I’m not a person who crosses bridges before I get to them…there are way too many “Jack Stories” one can give herself before she reaches the bridge…if you know what I mean.
I’ve found “Jack Stories” tend to complicate a person’s life. “Jack Stories” tend to attach unwanted baggage of envy, jealousy, negativity, and insecurities to a person.
So if you find your world filling up with things you don’t want in it….start living in the NOW…don’t worry about the future and stop living in the past…just BE in the moment and enjoy your life.
