    Default Worries

    Hi, I have these statements and would like to see if there is a better way to express the idea. Please kindly help

    (1) Please enjoy the moment we have now, and let's not worrying anything that doesn't belong to today.

    (2) Enjoy this moment, and forget all worries that you have for tomorrow.

    I think both lines are not smooth, and somehow awkward, esp 'belong to today' in (1).

    I would also wonder if there is any idiom that suggests the similar philosophy - like, worrying something that may or may not happen in the future won't help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi

    Enjoy the moment , don`t worry [about it / anything].

    Enjoy every moment, don`t worry about future.
