Being present…

Today I deleted a page that I called, for starters.  The reason being is that I need to stop looking back and just look forward.  There is no reason to take account of everything done, accomplished, and experienced when all those things are in the past and not in my present.  I want to try to focus on being present–not in the past, not in the future, near or far, just in the now, this very moment.  I tend to find that I am always either reminiscing or regretting about the past, and/or  anticipating, contemplating or impatiently awaiting whats to come or wishing for something to come of the future, but very rarely am I ever just being–very rarely can I say that I can sit and think about just now, this very moment, without veering off to the past or to the future.  So, that is why I have decided to avoid any talk of the past, and as for not talking about the future, well that is more difficult because that is the only way to set goals and aim towards them.  So an added goal is to become more present and stop thinking always about what is next or what has been and just worry about what is!  (If this makes any sense at all!)
