Be Present

Be Present

A Poem by Anna Rivers

This is based on something that came to me today and it really helped me feel relief from some anxiety. I hope this will also boost your mood and help you stay motivated.

The past is the past.
The past isn't the present.
The future is the future,
But still doesn't define what is the present.

Neither of these has any power or say
About what may
be the present.

The past leads to the present,
But it could never take away
The power in making
A new choice, a new path.

The past is the past,
And that's all it could be.

The past does not define you.

The future is an unknown, 
But holds so little power.
It has absolutely no bearing on the

Because it never happened!

The present is the present...

And your present holds more
Power and significance than your past
And future.
They can't hurt your present.

Focus on the now.
Don't let what happened bother you,
Or stop you.
Move on.

And let your anxieties go.  :) 
Have a beautiful day!
