Tomorrow is not today, Today is not yesterday - Swabhi Parmar

The great Buddha once said, “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly” Unfortunately, humanity today doesn’t always conform to that statement. The human race generally hates chaos and disorganization in any shape or form. That being said, humans love to plan ahead and look to the past to avoid future mistakes. Typically this is fine to do, since everybody does it at some point in their life, but its when you begin to overthink the events of the past or the future then it becomes a problem. 

When you overthink and stress about events in the past then you are unable to move on and it begins to control what you say and do every day in your life. While overthinking the future doesn’t have such dramatic effects, it does create more stress, which is not good for both your mental and physical health. Life moves too fast to be worrying about the past or the future, so just stick to the present because you may end up regretting it later on in life. If you’re always planning ahead and making plans for what you are doing tomorrow, then you are probably doing today what you had planned yesterday, meaning that you aren’t actually living for today, but for tomorrow. That's not living in the moment, not even remotely close.

The past is something that we all dwell on once in a while, but there are some people out there who cannot let go of the past and thus are controlled by it. A normal person typically moves on from the past and leaves it behind them, but some may become traumatized by something that may have happened in their past or may feel like they may be judged because of their past. But this thinking is untrue. As we cannot go and rewind to change the things in past. So nothing to regret about it. Just let go of it. Breathe, restore, reshape and come back harder and stronger. Live every inch of the moment in the present. Be an Emperor of your own life.
