Temporally unfocused

Most people live their lives temporally unfocused. We spend our lives focused on the future or the past, worrying about what’s to come and brooding over what has transpired, even though we have only so much control over what will happen, and absolutely none over what has already come to pass.

Rarely are the self and the mind focused in the same place, now. And while our minds are elsewhere, the present slips away in a daze, becoming a past we regret and a future we didn’t wish for.

This is all an elaborate way to explain why I haven’t been posting lately. I’ve been temporally unfocused, alternating between annoyance about recent events and worry about the future, all of which has paralyzed me in the present.

This post is to remind me to live in the present. The present makes the future, and creates the regrets (or not) the past will hold.

Focus on now, and the future and past will take care of themselves.
