Opportunities. Takeaways. Lessons. Memories. Experiences. Moments. They come and they go.
Now, either you’re alert to receive them. To form them. To learn from them. To enjoy them.
Or you’re busy with something else, or you’re not present enough and unfortunately, you miss the train.
Every day, every moment of our time is spent on thinking about yesterday, our past actions, our past results, our past thoughts and what not.
Because you know the outcome of yesterday, i.e. today, we tend to think more of yesterday and everything we did to be here today.
Now, where you are today, because of yesterday, leads to either you being satisfied with today or you being disappointed and discouraged with the baggage of yesterday.
This baggage holds you back, holds your emotions, can keep you in a what-if loop cycle, constantly thinking how you could have changed yesterday.
Only thing to snap back and to come back in the moment is to realize that you cannot time travel and what’s done is done. But, today leads up to tomorrow and that is the only thing in your control.
