In class we talked about what we believe in. I believe that it is important for us to live in the present. We should concentrate on the present and not constantly look to the future or dwell on the past. There will always be more chances in the future or times you could have done better in the past. We should take opportunities as they come; you will never know if an opportunity will ever come again.
An example of this would be a football team. If they lose a game during the season, they must put that game behind them and try to win their next game. The only thing that matters when you are playing a game is that game, not the weeks before or after. In playoff games you especially have to focus on that game only, or you will not get to play any more games. We also have to account for injuries. They are totally unpredictable and can happen at any time, so you have to play every play like it could be your last.
These concepts should be applied to real life. Time tends to fly past and we must learn to enjoy what we are doing; we must seize the moment.
