Live In the Present Moment
“Focus on the moment, not the monsters that may or may not be up ahead.”
Our minds do not take things or situations as they are. We always add some additional meaning to them. We consider if something is fair or not, what is behind it, what others would say. We waste so much energy on mulling over the situation that we could be used to overcome it.
For all species, except humans, things are what they are. Animals do not add meaning to things or situations. Because of that, they can enjoy the present.
The implications of our problems are theoretical. They are in the past or in the future. The more we live in the present the easier it will be to face our problems.
It is good to remember that a moment is not our life, but just a moment in our life.
