It’s scary to think that one day we’re going to have to live without our mother or father or brother or husband or wife. Or that one day we’re going to have to walk this earth without our best friend by our side, or them without us. Appreciate your loved ones while you can, because none of us are going to be here forever.

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.

I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.

Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.

When we make mistakes, we cannot turn the clock back and try again. All we can do is use the present well.

It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.

In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself.

If you’re always racing to the next moment, what happens to the one you’re in?

Every day is an opportunity to have a fresh start. It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday; all that counts is today. When you wake up in the morning know that today is full of opportunities waiting to be grabbed. It is a new day, a new start. The beginning of a new life awaits you.

In today’s rush, we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just being.

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.

Why let go of yesterday? Because yesterday has already let go of you.

No one can go back, but everyone can go forward. And tomorrow, when the sun rises, all you have to say to yourself is: I am going to think of this day as the first day of my life.

Don’t believe everything you think. Thoughts are just that—thoughts.

Without giving up hope—that there’s somewhere better to be, that there’s someone better to be—we will never relax with where we are or who we are.

Don’t let the darkness from your past block the light of joy in your present. What happened is done. Stop giving time to things which no longer exist, when there is so much joy to be found here and now.

Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.

Stay present. Stay conscious. Be the ever-alert guardian of your inner space.

The greatest gift you can give yourself is a little bit of your own attention.
