On looking back into your past
thinking how the time flew by,
you stop seeing the important things in life,
while struggling to survive.
Worrying about the future
and the mistakes made long ago,
disturb your peace of mind at present
you just can't let it go.
Your errors are over and done with,
your past you've left behind.
The future ahead is a blank slate
so to yourself be kind
Stop worrying about what might not be
or dwell on your wrongs with regret
best to live in the here and the now
For it's the key to real happiness.

So true and so wise. All those things I try to do and no doubt you follow your own advice. There are so many things in life to be thankful for - a sense of humour being one, which I have and you have shown that you also see the joy and much humour in life.  Where would we be without laughter?  Smiles and giggles are good but you can't beat a good old 'belly laugh' to dissolve all your worries.  I just wish doctors could write a prescription for these.  A three month supply at a time would be good!

Thanks Shelly. Yes laughter is very  important and staying grounded too.
The film Patch Adams proved it laughter is the best medicine :D

That's so true and very well expressed, my mind is often stuck in past or future...but what should I do against it?

yes mine too it´s quite hard not the think of the past or worry about the future. I think the answer is in mostly being thankful for what one has  , for the little thing in life.  Animals always live in the present they don´t dwell on the past or worry what´might happen in the future. I think that´s whay they sleep better than we do.  I wish sometime I could be more like my cat she can be so laid back and looks so relaxed in every position :D

The problem is that I'm not as thankful as I should be, I can very much relate to what you said about your cat, I have one too, when she's around she motivates me to just be in that moment, concentrate to look out of the window and enjoy it or watching her jumping against the wall, sometimes I envy her simple life. Thank you for your advice!

Beautiful ... "Carpe diem" (Latin. seize the day). The important is to live today. Yesterday has gone and tomorrow may not come.
