The older we get, the more we worry and fret about our future.
We think of the things we want to accomplish, things that we haven’t accomplished and become unnecessarily anxious.
And it’s bad because we’re living our lives based off this anxiety instead of truly living in the moment.
Most younger people tend to not think too much about their future as much as older adults do.
They’re just concerned with living life in the moment – living it to its fullest.
In many ways, this is the most ideal way to live life instead of being constantly worried about the future and what’s to come.
As people age, we tend to search for meaning to our lives, critically think about where we’re heading in life and just worry unnecessarily.
And this creates a lot of anxiety and stress.
Now I’m not saying that we shouldn’t be thinking about the future at all.
It’s all about balance.
Because some of us are just worrying way too much about our future and our lives that we’re forgetting the point of living.
Live in the moment.
But also spend some time planning for the future too.
Life’s too short to spend it worrying.
All we need is some reflection and planning.
Worrying is unnecessary and counter-productive.
Life’s too short for that too anyway.
