"Do something today that your future self will thank you for"
Down the road, I’ve heard that the strongest negative emotion humans feel is regret. They wish they tried this, or did that, or maybe wasted too much time doing something else. Similarly, a lot of people regret their outlook on life and their mentality that they wasted too much time stressing about things or neglecting things that were important to them.
It is possible to have the best of both worlds with doing something in the moment that prepares you for fulfillment in the future. That thing is to choose positivity. When you feel like you are living, enjoying the moment, and experiencing special things, it is hard to hold on to regret. Choosing to see things as a positive influence in your life will help you minimize that regret when you get older. So, do something today that your future self will thank you for.
