What-If and Could-Be

“What is, is.  What isn’t, isn’t.”                 -Unknown
We spend most of your lives contemplating and obsessing over What If and Could Be, and those two phrases are toxic.  Why is it toxic to think about ones past mistakes and see the better course or to formulate every detail of one’s ideal future?  Because it doesn’t change anything.  You will never go back in time and change your actions nor can you skip through time; through all your worrying and obsessing, your only result is wasted time.  By thinking about What-If and Could-Be, you lose the present moment.  It is the only time we have. 
Today, catch yourself using What-Ifs and Could-Bes, accept you cannot change it and focus yourself on the present.
