The future is not yet born. It has not yet happened. Just like the past it doesn’t exist either. But you do have a choice about your future: You can let it happen, or you can make it happen.
I must confess that too often I have just let it happen.
If I allow yesterday’s regrets become tomorrow’s fears I end up in ambivalence – unable to decide what to do, frozen. And the only decision I can make is to procrastinate – put things off till ‘tomorrow.’
This is called ‘letting it happen.’ Yesterday’s regrets and tomorrow’s fear will repeat themselves. The cycle of shame continues indefinitely until you able to make a decision.
When you make a decision to do something and act upon it, something wonderful happens: You take control of your future and you make it happen!
Personally, I would rather make it happen.
And I can do this by continuing to make decisions right now – in this present moment – in this present circumstance in which I find myself.
You can have a better tomorrow if you decide today how that’s going to look.
