Chapter 38 : Living

2dvu3h2iIf you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.” Lao Tzu

I think way too much, creating problems that may not have even presented themselves, had i not given them so much attention or “built them up in my mind”. It’s the art of making a big deal about something, that never was to begin with.

What are we still holding onto? What hurts can we not forgive?  and can we forgive ourselves? It’s time that we give ourselves the keys to your own freedom.

1.Acceptance

What is, what was and what is still to come.

2.Forgiveness

For the hurts you have caused and hurts you have endured.

3.Gratitude

For everything and anything in your life that has value.

4.Humility

To humble yourself is to know that you are not above or beneath anyone else. Go easy on yourself, its o.k to not be perfect.

5.Patience

In time you will see, that you were exactly where you were supposed to be.

We dream of the future, to distract ourselves from the present, in order to forget the past. Heal the past, live in the present and don’t rush to the future. Life is a journey and it will all be over before you know it.
