Bad Habit

Post #4- A Habit You Wish You Didn't Have 

"You can clutch the past so tightly to your
chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present."

 If there were a perfect quote to sum up my bad habit-this would be the one. I have a hard time living in the 'now'. I either clutch too tightly to my past, (past events, past people, past emotions), or let anxiety about the future over take me. I have a hard time knowing how to live in the 'now'. How to live day to day- instead of in yesterday, or tomorrow. The problem is that yesterday already happened. And as hard as I sometimes try, I can't get it back. I can't change the hurt, the happiness, the tears, or the laughter. I can't change the events of yesterday, it's already there....forever. All I can do, is make today better- a day that tomorrow I won't want so badly to change. The problem is I spend so much time worrying about tomorrow, that I forget to make today that 'better day'.  But if  I continue looking back, while trying to move forward, chances are I'm going to trip and fall. Who wants to trip and fall? That usually results in 




and embarrassment.
