When I came across this quote the other day, it hit me hard just how true it is. I have always been such an anxious person but I never made the connection between that and my mind constantly living in the future. I am always so worried about the consequences of certain things, or what’s going to happen down the road, that I often forget to just enjoy the moment I’m in. I’ve actually gotten pretty good at letting go of the past, but it’s rare that I don’t think about the future either, and experience that feeling of joy and peace that comes with being fully immersed in a present moment. I wonder if people who constantly live in the present are always experiencing those feelings. I’m trying to make a conscious effort not to worry so much about the future and fully embracing the here and now.
