August:Twenty Five

"There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live"
~ the Dali Lama

The day before I saw this quote, a friend of mine had said "If you live in the past, you are depressed. If you live in the future, you are anxious. If you live in the present, you are happy" - I went to bed that night and this kept playing over and over in my mind.  How true! I know this, and I try diligently to live in the present, though I don't always succeed.  As someone who has recently been diagnosed with depression AND anxiety, I understand how extremely important it is to live in the present, though I suppose I never really knew the physical impact of dwelling on the past, or trying to predict the future.
