5 Simple Rules To Live By
1. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you

5. Your future shapes your present, your present shapes your past
I happened to have a fortune cookie that said this tonight!
Spend some time making plans, dreams and goals for your future, then refer to them in the present. As much as you can stay mindful of the present moment and be grateful. Let go of the past: if it was great, enjoy the memories but leave them behind. If it was not great, close the door. You never have to open it again.
I take this to mean that your future aspirations can shape your present activities. Your present state can explain your past: "oh this is why I got a prize/ran that race/failed the test"
