Past, Present... & Future

Ida Scott Taylor once wrote: "Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering." (from One Tree Hill)

And I wonder.. how many of us follow that philosophy? Living the present without thinking in anything else?
It is a part of us.. keeping looking back and keep all the bad memories from the past! We can't run from it, we can't avoid it. Gone or not it's a part of us and the past it's what really give us a way of living...
The future may not be worth the worrying but we can't hide from it either. No matter the amount of freedom we have in our present.. we always think about the consequences of our actions towards the future. No matter if we are thinking about that on purpose or not... everytime we do something we know that there will be consequences, happen them to be good or bad.

But now, I tell you.. why don't follow the quote Ida Scott Taylor once wrote? I say it's a possibility!
No matter the past.. no matter the future.. live your present as happy as you can be. Follow your insticts, follow your dreams, follow your ambitions! Don't hesitate and make every moment of you life be worth of remembering and talking in the future. Otherwise.. how could you tell you have ever lived if you don't have memories of this thing so called life?
