Are you living in the past or living for the future?

The question of the day are you living in the past or living for the future?
One of my favorite quotes is 'you can't change the past but you can change the future'. This quote caused me to raise the question of whether or not I'm living in the past or the future.
I've come to some realizations this week.... I've been living in the past.
Two and a half years ago, I gained weight after hip surgery due to the fact that I quit exercising, got into bad eating habits, and then got into a cycle of beating myself up for my poor choices.
This week I began to realize that I'm still living in the past! Wasting energy dwelling on my surgery and its negative impact on my lifestyle! And living with the regret that I gained weight and don't fit into old clothes, etc.
Well the past is just that, the past. I can't change it. It's done.... time to move on.... and put the energy into the future.
My new motto: live for the future!!
Just curious are you living in the past or living for the future?
