Back to the Present
Today marks the day that Marty McFly arrived in the 'future.' The second part of the popular Back to the Future trilogy was released in 1989. This movie envisioned a future where everyone was using flying cars, hoverboards, food hydrators and futuristic clothing that still looked a whole lot 80's. Though a lot of their predictions didn't come true, some were pretty close. It will be interesting to see if the Cubs win the World Series.
Since the 1990's we've been introduced to DVDs, iPods, the World Wide Web, Google, iPads, smart phones, Skype, GPS and an onslaught of social media platforms. All kinds of technology to make life easier, yet we still don't seem to have enough hours in the day. All of this technology to connect us with others around the world, yet people are becoming more isolated. Video games have become so realistic that the line between fantasy and reality can easily become blurred. I'm not slamming technology, I think it's pretty amazing, but I do question our reliance on it and usage of it.
The gist of Back to the Future 2 is the characters travel to the future and the past to make changes allowing for a different outcome. It got me thinking, if we could travel to the past, or the future, and change something - would we? Since DeLorean time machines aren't readily available, is there anything we can do in the meantime? There are many people out there who spend a lot of time trapped in the past and there are those who spend a lot of their time worrying about the future. We forget to be in the present moment. The present is where we have the power to no longer allow the past to control us. The present is where we create our future. If we wish to have a different outcome, it is in the present moment where we have the power to set that intention and act upon it. The future will arrive soon enough. Why not enjoy the present? By enjoying the present, you're also creating a better past.
Love, Adrienne :)

I have to remind myself all the time to live and enjoy NOW! It doesn't come easy but the rewards, as you say, will be forthcoming. Have a great day!
