THE BLESSINGS OF LIFE IN THE 'NOW'

MANY OF US are concern about the future. From global warming to unstable economies to threats of terrorism, the concerns seem reasonable. On a personal level, people often wish they knew how things were going to work out in their lives. But unlike reading a mystery novel, we can't flip to the last page for the answer. So we spend lots of time guessing and formulating various scenarios. Sometimes we're on the money, and sometimes we're not.

But we lose a very valuable thing—the present—when we spend time this way. To focus on tomorrow is to overlook the joy and happines that are available today. And this obsessive eye on the future prevents us from taking advantage of the good today that can lead to even greater good tomorrow.
