This weeks topic is : Present

For the past few years my life has been focused around the future. I recently graduated high school and for my whole senior year we were focused on where we wanted to go with the future. We had to decide what we wanted to do with our lives like with college, career, and path we wanted to be on. However it was also a time to back to the past and remember all the wonderful and not so wonderful times we had together as a class.

My mind still is strongly focused on the future. I have many goals and things I am working towards now that truly cause my mind to go there immediately. It can be a good thing to think towards the future because if you didn't you wouldn't have anywhere to go. You would just get stuck.

But in order to have a good future and the future we want we must take advantage of the present. We can't overlook things that are happening in the hear and now just to skip towards the future. I know that many an opportunity is overlooked right now and then we regret what we didn't do in the past. Plus how we handle thing now in the present will go on to either make a positive or negative future.
