“When you have one foot in the past, and one in the future, you piss on the present.”” – Dan Harris
It’s tempting to daydream about the future, and it’s far too easy to dwell on the past. Being present is ironically the most challenging of the three.
Depression is when we dwell on the past. Anxiety is the fear of the future. And neither lead to happiness.
Happiness is not something we find in the past, and it’s definitely not something we postpone for the future. It is something we design for the present.
