 “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present” – Lao Tzu


I got this quote from a book I read (you are a badass by Jen Sincero – I highly recommend!) and it always pops into my mind randomly so I thought I’d make a post about it. These pictures were not planned but I liked my outfit so I thought I’d take a picture. It reminded me how a lot of the time I’m worried and anxious about the future, trying to plan five steps ahead. Don’t get me wrong, having a plan in place is great but I’ve been forgetting to live in the moment. Like the quote said, the present is where you can find peace. I’m trying harder to take in moments and be less anxious about the future.
I know many people complain that always taking pictures on your phone entails that you are not living in the present but I actually disagree. I think people should take pictures and videos as it could be seen as a form of living in the present. You are recording a moment in time, you are taking in that moment. I’m trying harder to stay present in moments and do my best. As long as you do your best at any present time, the future will be a little better for it. Either you would have learned something or you would be closer to your goal.
