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.

Stop focusing on how stressed you are and remember how blessed you are. It could be so much worse.

You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway.

The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.

Don’t wait for your feelings to change to take the action. Take the action and your feelings will change.

It’s not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?

Feelings are real and legitimate.

The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.

Beware the barrenness of a busy life.

Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.

Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace.

Never apologize for showing feelings. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.

Some people think it’s holding that makes one strong—sometimes it’s letting go.

It isn’t what happens to us that causes us to suffer; it’s what we say to ourselves about what happens.

I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.

The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the amount of uncertainty you can comfortably deal with.

The only pressure I’m under is the pressure I’ve put on myself.

You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Don’t let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of its worries.

I vow to let go of all worries and anxiety in order to be light and free.
