Lately, my goal has been to really strive to focus on myself. Not in a selfish way, but in a way to improve my self-worth and self-confidence. I am trying really hard to focus on the present time, and stop worrying about what happened in the past.
Ultimately, the past is the past. It can not be changed, you not go back in time, you can not undo your words or actions. I often find myself getting caught up in my thoughts of what could have been, or what could have happened if I were to change one detail of something I did or said. These ideas get me so caught up, and affect my life in many ways.
But, everything works out the way it is supposed to, mistakes work themselves out, and life moves on from the past and works towards a better future.
It is really important and beneficial for individuals to keep this idea of presence in mind.
If we are just living vicariously through the past, we are not really living. If we are not living every moment to the fullest, then we are not making the most of our lives. If we focus on making our present selves better, in preparation for our futures, instead of trying to undo the past, we will have complete control over our own destinies.
I encourage everyone to be where their feet are.
Do not try to take steps backward: you may fall and not be able to get back up again. Do not walk too fast: you could zoom right past things you are meant to see, hear, touch, or feel.
Think of where your feet are in every experience you go through, and just stay there. Focus your thoughts on that specific time. Thrive in that single moment, and just live your life.
