Every morning when we wake up, we are blessed with a gift. It is called the present, and we should carefully unwrap it, and be thankful for it. Quit looking back at the past, and trying to look ahead into the future. Instead, accept the present that you have been blessed with. If you are not happy with your present, work on it. It is yours, do not give it away, or constantly complain about it. Think of it as an art project, be creative with your present. Add a little bit more of yourself to the present everyday. Eventually, you will learn to love this present you have created.
