Do you live in the past? This is when you're thinking about what had happened..It may be regrets or success and it affects your present days...stagnating you in your present location... Do you live in the present? This is when today really matters, you don't care about the past..nor you think about the future... Do you live in the future? This is when you always think about tomorrow...you're too oriented about possibilities, and you tend to neglect the gifts of the present... What kind of a person are you? Where do you live?

I live in a bit of all of them that you mentioned. If I stayed in one to long I would be sucked into and it would take a while to untangle myself from it. The past if great for visiting but not living in and moping about might have beens and wishes. The present is great but it is good to look forward toward the future of tomorrow and be prepared to step up to the plate of and do what matters and what needs to be done. As long as you don't sit and daydream your present day away and waste it on what might be and just stick the here and now. Don't get sucked in.

I think I am the kind of person who lives for tomorrow, somewhere between the present and the future, but one thing I never do is live in the past, although, I learn from my past experiences and try to make improvements in my life.

In reality we need all to succeed in life. Some things are better left alone in the past (hurtful things and bad memories) but we sometimes need to visit the past to remember the good memories. I said visit not live in it! LOL And to some degree we need to not be so stressed and serious about things and live in the present and not worry about the others and appreciate what we do have. And then of course we need to plan for the future so it does us well to visit there occasionally. I live mostly in the present and try to appreciate what I have now.

I'm a person that lives in the present. where i take every day one by one. enjoying every minute that i have, because once its gone i cant get it back. i like to enjoy my life to the fullest and i cant do that if I'm always thinking about the past for my future. you only have one life to live so enjoy every minute that your given, you never know when its going to be your last. i don't see any point in living in the past. there's a reason that they call it that, its gone and past buy so whats the point in living in it. you cant change what has happen, and you cant really go back and relive it. as far as the future goes. its all dreams until you make them real. the future can be anything you make it to be, its not a place that i would like to live. always think about whats going to happen makes you waste the time that you have.

All the Three. Pasts come back when I want to do something. I just browse through my history to see if I can do something better from previous experiences. Present because I am always living for the moment, than worrying about the future.In the future, not far away, but near future. Always planning on how to get things to be happy and have more fun. I never think about a thing for a lot of time because it cause stress and worries. Which are not conducive for a happy environment. As they say, ' Past is History, Future is a Mystery. But today is a gift. That's why it's called The Present'- Kung Fu Panda bourne

I think about the past a lot. I have made so many mistakes. I am SO far from perfect! I try to just move on and think about how to have a happier future with what I have learned.
