Live in the present because that’s all that’s available to you right now.
When a perfectionist looks back at their past, they get down on themselves for having “failed”. When they look to their future, they tend to see it with rose-colored glasses, and it consumes them. Lots of time is wasted either looking backward or forward. Just celebrate the NOW and realize it doesn’t have to all fall into place for you to have a wonderful day in the space we call today.
