Do You Live In The Past, Present or Future?

Growing up, most kids want to be older than they are. When they are 7, they want to be 13! They get to 13 and they want to be 18! They reach 18 and want to be 21! Not me. I had a wonderful childhood and wanted it to last as long as possible. My advice is to enjoy every age you are. I always thought Peter Pan had the right idea--never grow up. Although I did get older and turned into an adult, I still try to make the most of each year God gives me. After all, life is short and we can never go back. Even now, as I anticipate retiring one day in about seven years, I still want to enjoy the time I am in now. Psalms 118:24 says, This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
I took this little test and here's my results:

You Live in the Present

You take things one day at a time.

And it turns out, that's a pretty great way to live.

You aren't consumed by the past, and you're aren't obsessed with the future.

You live in the now, and you enjoy each moment.

While most people don't live in the present enough, make sure you don't live in it too much.

It would be a mistake to forget your past or neglect to plan for the future.

I thought this was a beautiful post. We need to savor each minute we have on earth and live life to its fullest. We never know what lies around the next corner and shouldn't worry about what has past.
I loved the quiz too. Thanks for sharing that.
