She wasted some part of her today in fear of tomorrow,
And the other part of it on regrets of yesterday,
Her heart remained always filled with sorrow,
Time passed slowly for her but life faded away…..
We waste so much of our time in worry and regret. Fear of what may or may not happen dictates our present followed by regret of wasting that time fearing the worse would happen that actually didn’t happen.
I am not saying our fears are baseless but at most times our reaction to them are very exaggerated. A scared mind tends to think the worse diminishing our potentual to face life. Most of our energy is drained imagining the worse thus thwarting the will to face current circumstances.
It is very aptly said, ” Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow . It empties today of its strength instead “.
So the best thing I feel is to live in the present. Do plan for the future but don’t stress for it. Everything may or may not happen as per your plans, but maybe your life is designed for even better things than what you have hoped or prayed for…….
