Losing today

In our goal driven, hamster on a wheel, hedonistic life we look to the future for happiness, while all the time ignoring the present moment. Any happiness or satisfaction that life offers is now. There is nothing but the now.

Wake up, stop wishing for something that doesn’t exist. If you want to start a business, learn something, love someone, do it now. Your life is marching on and you are not present or aware; instead of living, you are dreaming about who you will be in the future. Accept it or not, the fact is there is no guarantee of the future, and sitting on your ass pondering it accomplishes nothing.
