Past, Present, Future

Life passes by in minutes; seconds tick away as the sun rises and sets. In the present moment you notice time move slowly, for a year is way too long. Some days seem to drag out into infinity, and others you’d miss in a blink of an eye; it all depends on your lifestyle. Alas, we do not seem to notice the school year is now almost over. Eight months have flashed before our eyes, and as you look back on the year, you realize just how fast everything went and wish you would have done something different.

Well it doesn’t matter now, the past is done. But, the future is ours to shape. If you want to make a difference in the world (or for yourself) do it, for that would be your future and in your present state of mind, anything is possible.

Picturing yourself in the future can be somewhat difficult if you don’t have a positive attitude, so please don’t be sitting on a couch mumbling to yourself about how you should’ve done this, or should’ve said that. Do not regret your past, because that is unchangeable. But, be proud of your present, knowing you are doing something good for yourself and others. Live in the present, because that is all that matters.
