The Power of the Present Moment
Remembering past events can be useful if the memories help you to learn and progress; but spending time regretting anything that happened in the past only takes power away from the present moment, which is really all that we actually have. Similarly, looking forward to the future is necessary in order to plan your course; but if you use your time worrying over things that haven’t happened yet, you again steal power from the present moment. Choose to remember the things that help you choose a better path, then make the present moment one of action to move along that path. Do this enough, and the potential for regret will lessen, because eventually the memories of the past you look back on will be comprised of nothing but the better choices you made about your future path – starting now.
