Announcement: Wish you could change the past? Learn to let go and create a life you love with the Tiny Buddha course!

Let the past make you better, not bitter.

Pause and remember: Every single event in your life, especially the difficult lessons, have made you smarter, stronger, an wiser than you were yesterday.

Some people and events are difficult to deal with, but they can only stress us if we let them. Breathe in calm, breathe out chaos, and anchor yourself in peace.

Remember the time you thought you never could survive? You did it, and you can do it again.

Ships don’t sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down.

Note to self: Beating yourself up for your flaws and mistakes won’t make you perfect, and you don’t have to be. Learn, forgive yourself, and remember: We all struggle; it’s just part of being human.

Make the most of today. Don’t allow the troubles of yesterday to steal the gift of right now.

Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes away today’s peace.

Kindness begins with the understanding that we all struggle.

Every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good, make sure you enjoy and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way.

Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.

I will breathe. I will think of solutions, I will not let my worry control me. I will not let my stress level break me. I will simply breathe. And it will be okay. Because I don’t quit.

P.S. You’re not going to die. Here’s the white-hot truth: if you go bankrupt, you’ll still be okay. If you lose the gig, the lover, the house, you’ll still be okay. If you sing off-key, get beat by the competition, have your heart shattered, get fired…it’s not going to kill you. Ask anyone who’s been through it.

Just breathe. You are strong enough to handle your challenges, wise enough to find solutions to your problems, and capable enough to do whatever needs to be done.

Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.

I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.

If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

What you deny or ignore, you delay. What you accept and face, you conquer.

There are three solutions to every problem: accept it, change it, or leave it.
