I have collected 3 magnets with powerful words that have captured what I'm trying to achieve on this journey called life and enlightenment. They are on the fridge so I keep reading them over and over and remember the words during the day as stuff comes up.
The first magnet reads: "For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin a real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination." - Alfred D. Souza
The second magnet reads: "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." - Neale Donald Walsch
The third magnet reads: "Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." - Reinhold Niebuhr
Now that I'm aware...
I have found happiness everyday that I used to not see... there is plenty around us, just look.
I try to get out of my comfort zone when the opportunity arises... Not Easy! Try it sometime.
I have found that I cannot change anything, I can only change myself.
Oh, and below the 3 magnets... the Breathe & Flow Yoga Studio schedule... so I keep on the road of my Yoga practice.
