Do you often think of what you did wrong in the Past ? And “what if” it ?
I used to do it. a. lot. Really.
Imagining what my life could be if I went in this direction instead of this one, if I continued to study psychology and pass the final exam after years and years at the University, what if… what if…
And when I was not revisiting my Past, I had the tendency to project myself in the Future. What will it be like ? Will I be happy ? What will I do for a living ? and so many questions that blocked me.
Today, I have the detachment necessary to fully appreciate the NOW.
I am not fond of all the Carpe Diem thing because I think people tend to use it carelessly and do reckless things just “in case I die tomorrow”. It’s not the meaning I want for Carpe Diem.
The Alchemy of Manifestation Workshop I attended reminded me of this aspect of my life I want to follow: love the Now, no matter what was the Past and be confident regarding the Future.
And being grateful is directly linked with it, in my opinion. Because when I am thankful, I am fully and totally apreciating the NOW moment of my everyday life.
