Atomic Snow #9: There is only now

Changing tomorrow, today

In the last Atomic Snow, I touched upon the idea of travelling to the future or past and affecting that change in the present. Riding that train of thought further, I wanted to stress the importance of what is in our control.

The urge to time travel comes with the thought of changing events in the past. Most time travel movies have shown us that any such change creates ripples in the time-space continuum, thereby, changing the reality of the present. This ends up as a paradox because the present, from which you travelled back in time, no longer exists due to the changes you made back in time.

But for the moment, let us establish that any change made at any point in time has far-reaching consequences. In that logic, any change we make now can have far reaching consequences in our future. What if we then treat the present with that much amount of seriousness and awareness as if we had travelled back to this moment?

"Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity."
~ James Clear

If we waste time now, we are wasting away our future. However, if we repurpose this moment, we can affect the change we want and thereby, have the future in our favor.

I invite you to ponder on the question: What can we change in this moment to attain a more favorable outcome?

Until the next owl delivery,
Yours always,
