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

You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.

Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.

We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives.

As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love—even the most simple action.

Choose your thoughts carefully. Keep what brings you peace, release what brings you suffering, and know that happiness is just a thought away.

Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now, and if the past can’t prevent you from being present now, what power does it have?

If you live in fear of the future because of what happened in your past, you’ll end up losing what you have in the present.

You can never be happy if you’re trapped in the past and fearful of the future. Living in the present is the only way to be happy.

Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.

The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.

Don’t stress over past mistakes because there’s nothing you can do to change them. Focus on your present and create your future today.

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present. 

Three things you cannot recover in life: the word after it’s said, the moment after it’s missed, and the time after it’s gone.

The past exists only in our memories, the future only in our plans. The present is our only reality.

The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment.

When you try to control everything, you enjoy nothing. Sometimes you just need to relax, breathe, let go and live in the moment.

When you love someone, the best thing you can offer is your presence. How can you love if you are not there?

Worry looks around, fear looks back, faith looks up, guilt looks down, but I look forward.

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
