I agree with this: "Perhaps I've got it all wrong. Maybe the point isn't to keep focusing on the future but to start remembering how to relish the present moment." It's actually a difficult learning curve, learning to live in the present moment. That's been my self-assignment since I retired. I've adopted a Rumi phrase as my modus operandi: "Human being, not human doing." Now I'm finding it's a big bonus of no longer *having* to do anything, having nobody else directing my days -- I'm able to focus on the present moment. Able to just do what I'm doing now and, only when it suits me, move on to the next thing. Take each moment as it comes, and enjoy it completely. Finally arriving at a stage of life when I'm "allowed to" live in the moment is awesome.
