“If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.”

 Lao Tzu

I may have already posted this quote, but i wasn't able to find it. (I really need to organize the quotes better!) Anyways, there is so much truth to this. When i think of the times in my life that i was down and depressed, i was either longingly remembering the past, or lamenting decisions and actions of the past.  And the times I feel anxiety it is usually when i am fretting about something in the future or fears of future events, etc... little children are great examples of living in the present.
