Live for the Future

Don’t ever dwell in your memories and regret the past. Everything that happened to you in the past is what made you who you are today!

Childhood friends, grade school teachers, sporting events, parents, holidays, church, love, hate, sex, pain, lies, noise, silence, weddings, funerals, music, revenge, weather, promises…..

All of these affect us and influence the decisions we make.

But you decide who you are everyday. You may think that you have no control of your life. But your wrong. You decide where you go, what you say and who you spend time with.

If your life is happy, then do the same thing everyday and enjoy it.

But if your life is not what you want it to be, then only you can change it. Don’t be miserable doing the same thing everyday. Change simple, subtle things in your life to improve it. Over time these little changes will improve your whole life.

Learn from your past. Improve yourself daily. Be present in your present. Live for your future.

    Hi, Marc. Found you via untitledminimalism. I agree about not regretting the past, although sometimes it’s hard. I’m finding that my journey into minimalism is helping me with re-evaluating and often letting go of sometimes negative views of the past. By shedding unnecessary material items from my life, I’m also lightening my mental load. I’m focusing more on the present, without continual temptations to wander into the past.

    I will look forward to your posts and exploring your archives!

      For me the mental load is much harder to minimize. You might read my Relationship minimization posts. Those were hard steps for me.

      Thank you for coming by and commenting!
