In the song “Beautiful Boy” John Lennon said:
Life is what happens to you
While you’re busy making other plans
I want to add that Life also happens while we are stuck in the past. We tend to overthink of offences, regrets, losses, occurred some time ago, and lose connection to reality.
Maybe, it is better to follow another quote from the same song:
Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Trust to somebody or something around you, because it can be Hand or/of Life…
