Yeah, you’re probably tired of hearing this from every person you come in contact with, but I am going to say it again because we all could use some reinforcement. LIVE IN THE PRESENT. Yes, sometimes it’s hard, as humans we are constantly thinking of the past or the future. Two things that we have no control over. Now we cannot change the past, but what we can do is learn from our mistakes we made in the past and prepare for the future.
I like applying this concept to specifically relationships. Let’s be honest with ourselves here for a moment. Not all relationships are meant to last forever. Most things in life aren’t meant to last forever. In relationships, we don’t know how long we will be involved romantically with someone else. We just don’t. It could be forever, it could not be forever. Sometimes a relationship comes to an end, and that’s okay. The important thing to always remember is be present with whoever you are with. Don’t think about “oh man I wonder if I will be with him or her 1 year down the road.” Live in the now with that person. It’s great if you see a future with someone, but sometimes that future doesn’t work out. People change, and sometimes grow apart. Again, that’s okay.
You give in the PRESENT moment of any relationship. It all comes down to giving. In any relationship you have the whole purpose is to give and help each other grow into the person they are meant to become. Live in the present and be the present!!
