This is being human, this is being natural.
Most of us all are like that.
And in any lifetime, there cannot be a uniform way to go along than this.
This is the most pragmatic way to look at human life in today’s context – the context that is not solely self-defined for most.
Yes, people define it so – in the name of living in present, not going too deep in the future – a future that cannot be assessed – and in order to do so, they even compromise their immediate tomorrow – that is eventually to become their next ‘today’.
And they are not wrong in the ‘worldly sense’. Yes, majority is thrown into the throes of a calculation of ‘then’ that they don’t have any mean to look at. And yes, majority tries to come out of it by correcting ‘today’.
And that is natural. And that is pragmatic.
What is not pragmatic is ‘not thinking about your immediate tomorrow’.
A ‘today’ draws its sanctity from your yesterdays (and past experience) and your immediate tomorrow. Your immediate tomorrow gives you the reason to make your today ‘as better as you can’. And your yesterday adds learned experiences to that.
We are what we feel about us today but the feeling has its construct drawn from yesterday and is reasoned on needs of your immediate tomorrow.
The past is always about learning and the immediate future is always about wisdom of that learning as interpreted in your today.
