Present

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

 

 

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. – When I’m depressed it could be I’m not as cheerful with myself. Yes, I like to remember the past and if I’ve one chance I would change a few things. However, remembering the past brings joy to my life.

If you are anxious, you are living in the future. – Once a while I feel anxious, but living in the future not too sure.

If you are at Peace, you are living in the Present. – This is the path I intend to be. It’s difficult, but achievable. We are living in a society where you get judged easily. Trying to live a peaceful life it’s hard to get.

1- I love to read and when I do, it takes me to a different world.
2- When I’ve the time I like to write, especially short stories.
3- A few months ago, I begin buying coloring books for adults. Since then I’ve already bought over twenty. I love spending the time coloring. It makes me feel calm and peaceful. That means I’m living in the present.

Imagine

Who doesn’t love this song? “Imagine all the people living life in peace”. This is the song of a dreamer and a believer that we all can change if we wanted it. We can save this world of madness and we can make a difference for the future of our children. In a perfect and an imaginary world, the song fits their purpose.
John Lennon wrote this song with an idea of having a peaceful world. I’ve read the opinions of some people and how they interpret the song. I’ll respect their opinion; however, the message is perfect no matter your race, gender, political views, or religion. I consider a beauty, peaceful, and touching.
The saddest thing is that we can only Imagine. “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one”.
