Happy 38th birthday, Chris Evans! (June 13, 1981)
Thinking you know how you should be doing things, or what you should be doing but then not executing those things leaves you kind of doing this spiral of disappointment. All that thinking is based on time. You’re basing who you are and what you think you should be on who you’ll be tomorrow and who you were yesterday. For me, the most effective tool I’ve adopted is just trying to stay present. All you really have in life I think is just now. A series of nows. I think when you kind of surrender to that, you can’t lose. For me getting through the struggles that are associated with day to day life is just to be present. Don’t think about tomorrow. Don’t think about the next minute. Just where are you right now, don’t miss right now, be here now.
