It’s easy to get caught up in daily worries about little things in life. If we look closer it becomes clear that we can’t even influence the outcome of a look of things we worry so much about.
We think about future events or get frustrated about our own reactions of the past. This does not get us anywhere and at some times it even takes a lot away from us. A lot of moments we could not fully enjoy or appreciate. Since I started to meditate a few months ago, I become so much more aware of the here and now, the moment that counts right now. If I focus more on the very moment, I can see a lot more the beauty of every little moment and value it including all its imperfections.
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
