When I was about sixteen I had one of those “light-bulb” moments. As a teen I battled Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (and still do today), but at that point I had not yet been diagnosed and my thoughts and emotions were all over the board. I often felt discouraged, would beat myself up, or feel guilty–many times for things completely outside of my control.
I also lived in a very small town, about 300 residents in all. There was a local cafe where many would cluster and discuss the “town gossip.” I was amazed at how much of this gossip focused on the negative and on the past. As I listened, I realized that in my mind, I was doing much the same thing. I was rehashing the past, feeling guilt for it, and losing the present moment as I battled something from yesterday.
The “light-bulb” moment came when I asked myself, “How would my life change if I spent 9/10’ths of that time, focusing on changing the PRESENT instead of rehashing the past?” Not only did I ask the question, I began living the answer. My life changed in phenomenal ways. By living in the moment, yet learning from the past, the concept of “regret” became a rare one for me because I was making today count.
At sixteen, I didn’t realize that moment would become the first building block for living a content and complete life. I didn’t know that would be the building block for the Make Today Matter program that has helped thousands of women find the same contentment in all areas of their lives.
Your Turn: What if you spent 9/10ths of the time where you think about the past, changing the present? I know you would realize wonderful things. Try it for 30 days. This simple concept can revolutionize your life.
Your Affirmation: I learn from the past, but I don’t sit in detention…instead I move forward and maximize the moment.
