Do Not Confuse The Present With The Past

Simone de Beauvoir said, 'We must not confuse the present with the past.
With regard to the past, no further action is possible.'

That is why you don't have to worry about it. It is gone forever.
You can't live in the past anymore. You can't grow in the past.
You can't love in the past. You can't be happy in the past.
You can't develop yourself in the past.
You can't do anything worthwhile in the past.

The only thing you can do to improve your life is to focus 
on what is going on right now, this moment.

This moment is very important. Everything that you have been looking
for is happening right where you are.
But if you do not pay attention to it, you won't see it.

And if you do not know what is happening right now, 
you can't create a better tomorrow.
Why is that? Because you need today to create tomorrow.
Without today's information, tomorrow won't happen. 

So to create a better tomorrow, to live in the present,
you must know what is going on around you. 

And do not forget to:
'Fight today for a better tomorrow.'
