Do you find yourself living more in the past or the present?
For me – I find myself more and more becoming aware of my habit of looking back and remembering events that took place. I believe it has been a work in progress for me to live more in the present moment and only use the past as a learning experience.

Do what feels right for you – not what others think you should do. After all, it is your life. It is your emotions. Let it lead you to where it may. Embrace it and you will know how to work with it. I did.
How about you? What’s your stance on your emotions these days?
