P is for Present: Day-16

Present is the only gate of time which leads us to the path of happiness.

Some people say life is short, because they tend to live in future. Some people say life is full of pain, because they tend to live in past. Some people never say anything about life. They just define it by living it to the full. Because they live in present.

The juggling among past, present and future spoils the very purpose of our life. They are three children of time who wants their part from the property of time. They want justice from you. It is important to divide things in between these three GATES OF TIME. Let us give memories to the past and worries to the future. Once they have they get their part, past and future will never interfere with present. Give your moments to the present.

Because life is a β€˜Present’ if you live in present. Keep an eye on past, brain on present and foot on future. Time is very rich and wide, so division will also be wide. Precise vision is required for division of the things among these three gates of time. If your past, present and future of your life are not in conflict with each other, you can breath the happiness of life. If these three gates of time are happy with your division, they can open the gates of happiness for you. I am sure you are not going to disappoint the children of time.

“Living in the present is the best present we can gift to our life.”

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 16 and it is on the letter ‘P’. ‘P’ is for Present. Live in the present.


Coming to the challenge, as the name itself says it is very challenging. On every day of month April, except Sundays, which makes it to 26 days, each participant should publish a post relating to the letter corresponding to the number of the day thus completing all the 26 alphabets. For example on day 1, the post should be on something related on letter A, on the second day it should be related to B and this goes on. Exciting? Isn’t it?

And as always, thanks for reading. This post is the same post (with some changes) which I wrote few months back. So just bringing that past memory in the moment of present to make the future better without worries.

    Great post. Can’t be reminded enough to strive to live in the present… to stay in the moment. So difficult for me to do. Post was very nicely crafted too.

      Thank you so much.. Yes, by living in the present, we move in the path of happiness. Yes, sometimes it becomes difficult to live in present because we tend to keep our thoughts on past and future.. We should appreciate the present moment. Thanks.

      Have a great time.. πŸ™‚

    This is so great Jackie I love the way you describe the importance of the present. Being mindful of the present is a conscious effort and in today’s society, we are already at work and in a meeting the minute we wake up. We need to refocus and bring our attention to the moment we are living in. πŸ™‚ Happy Wednesday πŸ˜€
