I’m not sure when or where I heard or read this inspirational tidbit, but it came to mind today.
More often than not, my head is in the future. I could at least be pleased that I’m not always dwelling on the past; however, though it is smart to be prepared for the future, we cannot live there either.
Most of what I do I do with the future in mind, but almost to the point of neglecting the present moment. Sometimes I need to learn to let that go a little and take in what and who surround me in the here and now. I’ve got to find a balance in this, and I am certain I’m not the only one out there with this problem.
And to borrow the wise words of Devo (though I would question the wisdom of their fashion sense, and many other things in their video), “When a problem comes along, you must whip it.” Problems will come along. Deal with them and persevere through the moment when they come, but we should no more dwell on the problems of the future than those of the past. So remember to live in the moment, and do the best you can. Leave the worries of tomorrow for tomorrow, and live beyond the past.
Just for fun. If you weren’t a child of the ’80s, I must caution you: this video may be disturbing.
