Living In The Present

IMG_0789

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past,

not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles,

but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.

    • Ihre Grüße sind die meisten Art und nachdenklich Gislinde. Ich danke Ihnen sehr und kann ich wünsche Ihnen eine glückliche, gesunde und ruhige Woche. senden Liebe, Eddie

  1. I totally agree, Eddie… the Romans used to say:”carpe diem!” = enjoy this very day! 🙂 as we can’t change, modify or improve anything in the past… our life is here and now! 🙂 My very best & respectful regards, Mélanie

  2. Living in the present was the hardest thing for me to learn, but it’s been essential to keeping me away from drugs and in recovery. I’m not sure people understand how important living in the present is! While I don’t think we should forget the past, I think dwelling on it, (or berating ourselves about it!) keeps us stuck repeating unhealthy choices.
    I love that you chose a rose to illustrate this quote. The thorns of the stem represent obstacles we need to overcome (our pasts) before we can be our rosy best possible selves (the present)
    Thank you for this one, Eddie…A great post for us all to take into the weekend! 🙂

    • You are most welcome Karen. Living, learning, growing, all is a part of life. Knowing this is our greatest wealth.
      Your sincere and kind words are most appreciated. Enjoy life daily
