Is it sensible to live in the present?

Is it sensible to live in the present?
I am thinking about whether there is a kind of reason to think about past or future. As I grow older I see more and more that present is what we are endowed with and that future will look as good as we live the present. It is of course sensible to think about future and be instructed by the past, but in the end only present moment is what we may influence. In intimate relationships it is natural that when one wants to build a true, stabil and lasting relationship one tries to think into the future as much as possible or wants to avoid the mistakes from the past. thisis of course benefitial for both parties but one should not be overwhelmed and preocupied with something that one is not able to influence. Past is gone and delving into it in cycles does not really help. Future is something that we may or may not influence but there is definitely not a point to keep oneselves fully devoured by it. There is a saying that if you want to make God laughing, tell Him your plans. One should not take it too seriously and there is definitely a need for future prospects in any relationships, but how can I know that the prospects is what God has in store for us? I do not want to sound pessimistic, but I think that there is a great wisdom in living the present moment and leaving all the rest for Him, who is the only one that can truly influence it.
