We are raised to focus on the future so it can be difficult to stop looking ahead and focus on the present. Yes you may not be where you thought you would be or want to be, but remember all the things you do have. When we are stuck focussing on the future it is much easier to see all the things do not have yet wish you did. It can be difficult to switch to a mindset of living in the moment, but things could look a little brighter for you if you do.
If you never pause to observe and appreciate the present you will never see what you have accomplished or all the things you have to be thankful for. I fully understand how frustrating it can be when you are not where you expected yourself to be. Right now I could almost be finished my college diploma if I had not dropped out because I did not want a career in my major. If I look at this from the present moment instead of focusing on the future it’s clear that I I’m taking steps to go back to school when the time is right.
Focused on the present I am thankful for everything I have and everything I have and that I am exactly where I am in life. If any experience had gone differently in the last three years my entire life could be very different, and I would not want that. Even If I had the chance I would not change a thing because my experiences made me who I am today and I’m content with that.
