Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
The most important hour is always the present.
The most significant person is precisely the one sitting across from you right now.
The most necessary work is always love.
You can stop once in a while and just ask yourself, “Am I present?” And bring your awareness to your breath, [and] all into your body.
In the present moment, there’s no more stress. Stress is the anticipation of something in the future so it’s in your imagination or something that you regret in the past. But in this moment there’s no stress.

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift” – Eleanor Roosevelt
“Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the
Varieties and realities of your existence;
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendor of beauty:
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But to-day well-lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day!
Such is the salutation of the dawn.
From the Sanskrit.”
The Optimist’s Good Morning
We have a choice. We can live in the past and be miserable and unhappy, or we can pick ourselves up and move ahead in life.
~ John Templeton
The wisdom imparted by John Templeton applies to you and me every second of our existence. What are the choices you face at the moment? What can you do to move forward with your life?
