If there is something in your life that you feel you need to change then it is probably best to start doing something about it now. If you don’t act now then another opportunity may be gone, lost in the past. What small thing could you do today to change things? What small change could be started today to change your future direction?
Time is relentless, everyday, every hour, more of the present falls into the past. We sit on top of it all in moments of the present. If we don’t act now we may lose the chance.
Most of the past gets buried like so much sediment in a river bed, buried by the relentless pressure of time. Some things stand out, particular moments in a life, others fade.
As you read, this present in turn becomes the past. If you think it might be time to change something about the effect the past has on you, then it might be best to start now.
