I find it quite interesting that, in the past, living for today wasn’t seen the same as people see it now. Planning for the future, reminiscing about the past, these were seen as luxuries. Today everyone is told that “living in the moment” is somehow more desirable. That spiritually it’s more desirable. Quotes like “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift..that’ s why they call it the present.” But, Regency England suggests that “living in the moment” was something people did because they had no hope.
Just goes to show…it’s truly all about viewpoint.
Sometimes dreaming of better days is how you get through the hard stuff today.
