Focus on the present and how to make the most of it and the past is gone.
You can’t give all your attention to the present and still have time to go back to the past that doesn’t exist anymore.
All you have is the present, not the past and not the future. You can repossess whatever was lost in the past by focusing on taking advantage of the present opportunities.
And you could use the experience life has given you, to create a better version of what was lost in the past.
Why worry about the past when you can’t buy it back?
“No man is rich enough to buy back his past.”- Oscar Wilde.
If your past ceased to interfer with the joy that today brings, the uncertainty of the future may cause you anxiety.
The answer to the question, “What should I do about the future?”, is found in how you use your present.
The present is the foundation for the future. It’s said that the best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.
Finally, if you want to live a happy life, bury your past, don’t worry about the future, live completely in the present.
Roy T. Bennett advised,
“If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.”
