“You can destroy your now by worrying about tomorrow.”Janis Joplin
It’s no secret that most kids tend towards ‘living for the moment’ rather than engaging in careful planning over their futures. Living in the now has its benefits; instant gratification, less anxiety and a sense of freedom. Worrying about what happens tomorrow ruins the present. But maybe a little worry over the future is a good thing and makes people carefully consider their options in the moment to make sure the right choices are made and long-term happiness is secured.
According to American singer Janis Joplin, you should live for the moment.
You should plan for the future.
Should we worry about the future?
