The ant does not only store food for the future, it eats today, to sustains itself to enjoy what it has stored for tomorrow.
When you have access to the best you do not use the worst that can demean and destroy us.
We mostly focus too much on the future to the neglect of the present.
In an attempt to secure a better future, we sometimes defer joy, rest and things that sustains our life.
Today is equally important as tomorrow.
If you do not survive today, how can you enjoy the better things stored for you tomorrow?
Use the present as a preparation for the future.
