Life is all about enjoying the moment. If you are not living in the moment, you are living in the past. And to live in the moment, you have to appreciate it. To do that, you can start with these lessons.

Now is all you have.

“There is only one thing in your life you can be sure of. That one thing is this moment, now. “- Barry Long

Now is all you have. Do not worry about your past. Do not worry about your future. Just focus on what is in front of you right now. If you can do what is in front of you right now, you can take care of the future. You can do it. Focus and see what happens.

Live in the moment. Enjoy it. Celebrate it.

“The present is the child, and the necessary child, of all the past, and the mother of all the future.”- Robert G. Ingersoll

If you can take care of Now, your future will take care of itself. Why is that? Because whatever you are doing right now is taking care of your future. What you are doing right now is feeding your future. If you are not working right now, it is never too late to start working. Why not now?

Now will later be your past.

“The slow one now will later be fast as the present now will later be past.”- Bob Dylan

The past is gone forever. Do not worry about it. Just focus on where you are, what you are doing, and how you are doing it. The future will take care of itself.

Control yourself, not time.

“You fail to understand… .We do not control time. If anything, it controls us. We simply measure it.”- Michael Moorcock

Life is huge! The only thing you can control is yourself. You can’t stop time from ticking, but you can control your life. Time is the distance that turns hate into love, that unhappiness into happiness.

If you want to know how you are spending your time, check how you are living your life. Life is time. Time is life. Here are 3 valuable lessons you can learn from TIME that can change how you live your life.

Time lost is time not used.

Time lost is time when we have not lived a full human life, time unenriched by experience, creative endeavor, enjoyment, and suffering. Time lost is time not filled, time left empty.”- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

That is why you should enjoy every moment of your life. Because if you don’t enjoy it, it will never come back to you. Remember, you are not going to be here forever. For that reason, you must do whatever you can to live a full human life.

Stop chasing the past.

“You shouldn’t chase after the past or place expectations on the future. What is past is left behind. The future is as yet unreached. Whatever quality is present you clearly see right here, right there.”- Gautama Buddha

I can’t separate myself from my past. But if I want to go forward, if I want to do great things in my life, I MUST stop chasing the past. You can do the same for your own life.

Do not adhere to your past. Let it go.

“Those who adhere to the past won’t be able to cope with the future.”- Willy Brandt

Yes, your past is important, but do not live there. It is over. If you want to experience the future, you must detach yourself from your past. Do not let your past hold you back from living in the moment, in the Now. Because everything is happening right here, right now. Enjoy it!
