Find peace and happiness in the moment

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. – Buddha

That’s how we’ll find peace and happiness when we stop waiting for tomorrow to come. What do we really know about the future, does it really exist? Have you seen a dog or a cat asleep? My kitty lives in the present moment to the fullest and indulges his peacefulness to the maximum while he’s sleeping. That’s because he doesn’t know the concept of tomorrow.

The concept of tomorrow

I think future is an illusion since it’s not happening yet. We predict what is going to happen and when we’re going to reach our dreams/goals. So, tomorrow is based on today’s prediction what will happen the day after. For example, if you don’t exercise or eat better today, the odds will not be in your favor. It’s likely that you’ll not do it tomorrow either, because you didn’t do it today and most people like to procrastinate. The more we play that way, we’ll eventually end up losing the game. So get up and start doing things that will make your health better today.

There is only today

Think of what we can achieve today if we change our thinking from ”I’ll do it tomorrow” to ”I’ll do it today”. I think we’ll achieve our goals faster and be more productive because we’ll be doing things everyday that will bring us closer to our dreams/goals. Do what you like to do today and ditch the concept of tomorrow and see how fast you’ll reach your goals. Stop worrying about the future and start living to your fullest potential today!

If there is no tomorrow that means happiness is here and now.

    Great post Healthygirl!

    Anyone who knows the concept of alcoholics anonymous knows that they stay sober just for today (one day at a time). It has saved and bettered many lives through the years. This is also the message I get from your post 🙂

    Bobby I didn’t know that, but I guess I need to stay “sober” from worrying =)
