Day 17

Life can come at us fast, so it’s important for us to take things one day at a day. It’s necessary for us to slow down. Learn to be in the moment. You don’t have to accomplish 500 things in a day to feel accomplished. Learn to feel accomplished by completing three tasks.

Learn to do things as they come to you. Life is almost like laundry, once the washing machine stops, you put the clothes in the dryer. You just have to take life as it comes. There is no need to rush life, or the need to know everything all at once. Life is lived one day at a time for reason. So don’t feel bad if you don’t know what to do next. Give yourself some time to figure what to do next.

I did not always believe in this, about how I should learn to take life slowly, and how I should live one day at a time until a few years ago. And ever since then, I noticed I was able to relax more because I wasn’t stressing out about things months away. I learned that sometimes it’s okay to not know everything at once. Whatever you are meant to know, will come to you when you need to know something. There is no reason to stress.

Today, I will accept that life is meant to be lived one day at a time, so I should only focus on things that are relevant for the day. By focusing my time and energy on today, I will be able to relax more instead of worrying about my tomorrows, and more tomorrows after that.

Find Yourself

“You cannot find yourself by going into the past. You find yourself by coming into the present.”

-Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now, page 91

What I like about this quote is that he encourages us to be present. Although yes, we can learn things from our past, but when you are truly finding yourself, you should be in the present. Being in the present allows you to see and feel what you truly want in life. I like to spend time being alone with my thoughts, it really helps me concentrate on what I am thinking. It also helps me write and blog better.

I also feel like when you are quiet and still all of the answers come to you. This helps me realize what I should do next. So whenever you feel lost, and not sure what to do next, allow yourself to sit and be still, and listen to your intuition, and you’ll know what to do next.

The Power – Eckhart Tolle

“The Power is in you. The answer is in you. And you are the answer to all your searches: you are the goal. You are the answer. It’s never outside.”

-Eckhart Tolle

This is something that I need to work because whenever I need help with a decision I would always ask someone else for help. The two people I seek guidance from is my boyfriend and my sister. This is okay but sometimes I rely too much on them to help me instead of them offering advice.

I need to learn to make decisions for myself and to not wholly rely on others to make decisions for me. They are not walking in my shoes; I am.

Follow Your Heart

I am a big believer of quotes.I find that they are always helpful; I always read one that affects my life.

One day I was shopping I came across this shirt that read; “Rule Number One: Follow Your Heart Every Day And Night.” It was the perfect shirt for me, it has lace and decorated with flowers so I can wear my daisy headband to match it.

This quote is useful for everyone.

Today, I will let my heart guide me for it knows best. I will not stress about life’s what ifs moments. I will put my trust in my heart, knowing that it will never let me down.
