2 Peas Challenge: Do you Live in the Past, Future or Present?

The challenge this week on the 2 Peas board is a really great question: "Do you live more in the past, present or future?"

I'm in a quandry as I type. This sort of question really makes you examine yourself. Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Do you bring up the past all the time or do you look hopefully toward the future. As much as I'd like to be able to say about myself that I live in the future, it really isn't true.

I scrap in the past and the present. And I think my scrapping in the past is making me live in the past? ..... (insert music.... 'Regrets I've had a few ... but then again .. too few to mention')... So my goal for this year is to get all of my 'past' photo's scrapped so I can focus more on the now!

I also scrap alot in the present. Who can resist when your little darlings give you so many fabulous moments to work with. So this keeps me focused on the now and what I have and how much I appreciate my husband and two beautiful children (who were pretty hard to come by... 5 pregnancies and only two live babies).

As to the future? I've pretty much given up on that hoping and wishing thing. It never turns out how I wished it anyway. I've put so much energy into wishing for things and they never happen quite the way you wish them. So now the future is always a lovely surprise! We'll get there when we get there. I now put my faith in the universe and that things are unfolding exactly as they're supposed to. I also don't want my kids to grow (lol) up so I try not to focus on where they'll be tomorrow instead focusing on today's achievements.

So I guess I live more in the now than anywhere else. But I scrap everywhere! lol
