While browsing through Tiny Buddha today, I found 3 quotes followed by stories that struck my attention.

“Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.” ~Eckhart Tolle

“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything—anger, guilt, or possessions—we cannot be free.”  ~Thich Nhat Hanh

“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.” ~Anna Quindlen

While we have been talking about Stress Awareness Month this week, I was looking for inspiration for ways to be more “zen.” Through reading, it occurred to me that one of the most stressful things many of us do, is choosing not to be in the present moment. Our mind is full of what we said yesterday, what we need to do tomorrow, or about things that haven’t even happened. However, all we ever have is right now. We need to realize this and make attempts to live in the moment.

Worry solves nothing. Let go of thoughts of yesterday, and set yourself free.  Cut yourself some slack by being you in every moment, not the person you think you should be. I wanted to share this with you to inspire us all to take a deeeeep breath and know that we are exactly where we need to be.

  1. I do trust all of the ideas you have introduced for your post.
    They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very brief for novices.
    Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
