Beware the fury of a patient man.

― John Dryden

I needed a good talking to. Here goes:

The past and future cannot be felt, they are not here. Conjuring up feelings about stuff that happened —or might happen— is what I do in the present. That also puts me at the helm. Here and now is mine. Here and now I can control. The past and future I cannot.

Right now, I can apply rational and logical thought, if I manage to make room for it. As soon as something has passed, analysis can be applied, dwelling on it won’t help me in any way.

Analysis helps me come to a decision about my actions now. But it is not a predictor. What actually will happen is uncertain. That is life.
