This weeks mantra:
“Enjoy your experiences in the present rather than worrying about how things will turn out in the end”
I need to remember to stop thinking in the future so much. Although I don’t do it a whole lot of the time, but every now and again, as all humans do, I think about what the future has in store for me and I occasionally worry about not ending up where I want to be or not being the person I want to be, or whatever. I think there is a point where you can prepare (to an extent) and look into the future for guidance and direction in where you are at now, but the trick is to not let it worry you about not “succeeding” or not living up to those expectations. Just take every moment as you can, and appreciate the little things that are present in your life and just be happy with what you have in the here and now.
Enjoy all of your life’s experiences. For they are the things that create who you become. And if you don’t like who you are becoming, change the way you react to the situations in your life. Who you are isn’t about the things that happen to you, it’s about the way you react to these things happening to you.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson says: “All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better”. Life is what you make it. If you want to make it a good, happy, carefree, peaceful life…then live a life of goodness, happiness, and peacefulness. Experiment with things and be content with who you are.
