“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow” – Albert Einstein
As human beings, we spend a great deal of our time thinking about our past, present and our futures, and how we think about each one of those, our attitudes to them and the attention that we give them can deeply affect us. If we dwell too much in the past, we can be stuck in regret or hankering after the ‘good old days’. By living too much in the future, we can cause ourselves needless anxiety or live in the fantasy land of ‘what if’, and miss out on what’s happening today.
If we follow the wise words of Albert Einstein we can acknowledge all three places and hold them in balance in order to create a harmonious life.
