Hope

A subject I do not often write about is hope. Not to say that I am pessimistic. I do believe in a future and hope that it will be bright but in my opinion a tomorrow is not guaranteed. That is not to say that we should live each day carelessly. I believe that we should plan for a future but not be heartbroken if plans fall through.
















Living each day mindfully and being present will allow you to embrace the future. Being stubborn and resisting the flow of life, only accepting certain outcomes is not a hopeful way to live. Being open to possibilities provides for endless hope. It will give you hope that there is a tomorrow even while you are in the present.




Be Still...

I am burdened with what the Buddhists call the ‘monkey mind’ – the thoughts that swing from limb to limb, stopping only to scratch themselves, spit and howl.
Elizabeth Gilbert



Hush, hush... Be patient... It will come... And it will go...
Do not fret. All in good time. My monkey mind you worry so.
Just let it go...
