Mirror, Mirror

In the first Lord of the Rings movie, Galadriel shows Frodo a mirror that displays "things that were, things that are, and some things that have not yet come to pass." Thankfully, there's no such mirror outside Middle Earth. In fact, perhaps mirrors can be a visible reminder that only the present really matters. A mirror shows only what is happening now, and that's how we need to live: free from the past, and not worried about the future.

as true as that is, it's easier said than done. I don't ever worry about the past but I do obsess about it. I imagine what life would have been like if...(fill in blank).

Ugh, I hate OCD.

My problem is "too much future."
