The Gift Of The Present

What might have been is always an abstraction; an event that never took place. An endless possibility only in the world of speculation, of what might have been and what has. They both point to one end, which is always present.

Every move we make always leads to this very moment. Right here right now. Somehow we always seem to find our self at this very moment.

When things go wrong, we find ourselves spending too much time dwelling on past mistakes and on chances we didn’t or couldn’t take; we try to relive past experiences, which in turn puts us on hold of every good thing life got to offer.

The gift of the present.

We get to experience the gift of the present when we learn to balance holding on and letting go. Life is a balance of holding on and letting go; sometimes holding on does more damage than letting go.

Every decision you have made in life so far, has led you to this very moment; the moment of creation; this is the moment where you get to choose how you want to act. How you choose to act is what makes the difference. Attitude is everything.

What should have been, will forever remain a mystery to us. It will make no difference if we knew all the past facts.

A relative of one of my friends named Mrs. Morgan shared an intriguing story with me. She shared an emotional story of how she lost the love of her life to a tragic car accident.

A day before he died, the couple had an argument, and upon annoyance she wished him dead. Unfortunately, the following day he lost his life in a terrible car accident. When she heard the news of her husband’s death, she was overwhelmed with tears and found it so hard to forgive herself for what she taught she did; now she finds herself reliving that moment and now dwells in thoughts like; “if I hadn’t wished him dead, he would still be alive”.

An endless possibility only in the world of speculation, of what might have been and what has; alternate reality. What might have been, will forever remain a mystery to her.

Accept the past for what it has been and look forward to a much better future by living in the present. Learn to appreciate life as it unfolds. Do not give energy to distorted imaginations; whenever you give energy to a distorted imagination, it impresses the subconscious with negative ideas; the genesis of bad decision making.

Appreciate little things people take for granted. Learn to live a life of gratitude for being here and now. The present is your gift. Appreciate it!!
