Time to think…about living in the present

“A good isn’t created by the addition of time, but if one is wise even for a moment, they will be no less happy than the person who exercises virtue for all time and happily passes their life in it.” Chrysippus

In the words of the fab Sheffield band ABC, “Why make the past your sacred cow?” The deeds of yesteryear, while good in themselves, are in the past. Don’t ruminate and chew over the old emotions, like a cow. There remains the present to be getting on with: there’s plenty of opportunity for a small act of kindness, including to yourself. “Help yourself to another piece of apple crumble.”
