“We tend to forget as we age that a single moment of thought can change the course of the day,” says the author. “You can change your life with a single thought.
This seems to be the theme of the day. For 17 years Instagram has been getting people’s thoughts and feelings across the world. I have no idea how many people have thought about how much they’ve changed over the years. But I also know that people are always thinking about things, so maybe now’s the time to start.
Maybe nows the time to change your life with a single thought. Maybe this is the kind of thing that we need more of, instead of just wishing it would.
I know this is such a cliché, but it’s worth saying again because it’s so true. I think it has to do with the fact that we spend so much of our lives thinking about the future. We spend so much time worrying about what is going to happen to us and how we are going to make it work that we forget to live in the now. We have to start living in the now.
Some people live to think about the past. They know that the future is going to suck. It’s also what keeps them going. Others live to think about the present. They know that the future is going to be great. They also know they can make their future great. They live to think about the future.
It’s easy to forget that life is what you make of it. It doesn’t have to be a straight line, and the future isn’t always going to be sunshine and roses.
I think that life is a series of little surprises. One of the hardest lessons I’ve learned is that the present is often as important as the future. I’m not saying this to be negative; it’s just that life is full of surprises. The future isn’t always going to be sunshine and roses. So if you want to live in the now, remember that the present is as important as the future.
Yeah, we all want to live in the now, but that’s not always going to be sunshine and roses. For example, we like to think that we can only be happy if we have a full life, but that’s not always the case. For example, having a full life is sometimes a lot of work, but it’s much easier to do if you have a full life.
This reminds me of the times I’ve taken a little time out to reflect on the past and it’s things that I’ve said or done. For example, I don’t like to plan for the future, I like to just live in the moment, in the now. I like to think that I can only stay so happy, but I’m really not as happy as I want to be. So I’m thankful for the past, and I’m thankful for the future.
It’s easy to go back and forth when we’re constantly comparing our lives with others. It’s much more difficult to look at your life and say, “Man, I’m so lucky to be alive.
