There are so many things in this life that seem to conspire to pull me into the past or the future. It sometimes seems like it is easier to fret about things that have happened or worry about things to come than it is to stay fully in the now, experiencing things in real-time. I choose to be present to all that is happening in my life – the good and the bad. The past is over; the future is yet to come. Dwelling in either place gets me nowhere. I choose to be present.
