Past, Present and Future

Life is a gift filled with beautiful and painful moments. It is what happens to us every moment, while our mind has thousands of thoughts and we are doing different things. We live every moment as we know, but call it in a different way: Past, Present and Future.

Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.

Allen Saunders


The beautiful moments tell us how beautiful life is. Yet, the “ugly” moments are the way life teaches us the lessons we need to change ourselves. To make those changes, decisions are ours when learning, skipping and living them again.

However, the past keeps being … history.

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.

Søren Kierkegaard


Future is the time we know we should fear. Yet, every moment we live, we call it “now”, so we should not fear “the future”. Every change we make on the way we live, changes something in the universe and our life is different.

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.

George Orwell, 1984


To learn from the past, and fear not the future, we have the only way to enjoy the life: living the present. It is the only time we have. It is the gift of the life.

Yesterday is history,
tomorrow is a mystery,
and today is a gift…
that’s why they call it present.
