I recently read that the happiest people are those who are present in every moment instead of wallowing in the past or planning for the future. I think the problem is society places a lot of focus on future plans as do most work environments so it’s really tough not to get used to that mindset. I catch myself thinking about the future far more than the present. For instance, right now I’ve got two things I’m looking forward to – 1) our annual Thanksgiving potluck at work tomorrow and 2) getting through this insanely busy week (6 hours of overtime already in the bag and it’s only Tuesday) so I can enjoy the entire week of Thanksgiving off. Both of those things make me happy so I guess it’s not always bad to be focused on the future, especially if it helps get you through a not so pleasant present.
