“Letting go of the past is your first step towards happiness.
You are not your past failures. You are not your past habits. You are not how others have at one time treated you. You are only who you think you are right now in this moment. You are only what you do right now in this moment.
You are here for a special reason. Stop being a prisoner of your past. Become the architect of your present and future. Learn from your regrets, but do not punish yourself with them. Live beyond your petty, fleeting fears and focus on the profound possibilities that await your immediate attention.”
and a few words on stress:
“Stop focusing on how stressed you are and remember how blessed you are. Complaining won’t change the outcome, but a positive attitude will. Life is too short to spend at war with yourself. Practise acceptance and forgiveness. Don’t let dumb little things break your happiness.
True wealth is the ability to experience and appreciate each moment for what it’s worth. It is not what happens to you, but how you respond to what happens to you.”
