I don’t hold onto things. I deal with it, process it, and let it go. I do not dwell on the past. We cannot go back we can only go forward. I’ve been trying to figure out what to write about. I currently have writer’s block. I looked at a few prompts to try to get the creativity flowing. It hit me. It’s difficult for me to think back to the past because I live completely in the present. Now that’s not to say that I don’t have memories. I have plenty of memories, good and bad. I just prefer to talk about the here and now.
Even in my relationship with John I just move on when we get in an argument. I don’t like tension. It makes me very uncomfortable. I would much rather just let it go and keep the peace. I believe that life is too short. John means too much to me to waste the energy on being mad. Really I face all my relationships this way. I say my piece. I hear their piece. And I tie it to a ballon and let it go. What good does holding on it do? None. Absolutely none.
I am a very calm person. I am happy most of the time. I do not have room for negativity in my life. I want to get back what I’m putting out in the world. So in order to get the best out of life I have to give the best of myself. I think I’m doing a pretty good job. I’m a very intuitive person. I process everything inwardly. This can be a strength. It can also be a weakness. I go on feeling and intuition. I trust my gut. I always have. It’s never let me down.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I thrive in the present. I try to take in every moment and just live it. I think the older I get the easier this gets for me. This wasn’t always the case. It’s taken me awhile to get to this point. We can’t change the past. We can’t predict the future. So we must make the absolute best of the here and now. I truly stand by that statement.
How about you? Are you stuck in the past? Do you worry to much about the future? Are you content in the here and now?
