Staying in the Present

When something brings u down, or upsets u, or makes u feel negative... Give urself that day/night to feel that way. Next day, move forward and Let The Negative Feelings Go. You can't change the past, so don't let the past change you! Live for each day and the ones following. You Can Do It!
