  1. What have I finished reading?

This book is extremely insightful and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone.

I will always love reading this book. I first read it in grade 10, and it gets better every time I read it. I plan on watching the movie soon.

2. What am I currently reading?

This book has sat on my bookshelf far too long without getting read. I remember buying it when it first came out, five years ago. I cannot wait to start this book tonight.

3. What will I read next?

I love everything about this book that I reread it every now and again for inspiration. It makes me miss the days where we had a bit more freedom to travel. I hope I can feel a bit more comfortable travelling next year. I just adore reading this book.

Doing Me

I have always viewed taking care of yourself as a selfish act but now that I have focused on myself it isn’t a selfish but a selfless state like Eckhart Tolle said in The Power of Now. I am thoroughly enjoying that book. Now I’m not saying you have never have to help out people ever, you still can. I am showing us the difference between letting someone walk over you and helping them out. There is a difference.

I did a lot of things that we were just for me and not for anyone else. I went for a run. I washed the dishes and put them away. I swept my room. These tasks are so simple but they sparked a lot of joy to me. I also ate healthy foods from doing all of that exercises and stretches.

Lesson of the Day

Doing things for yourself isn’t a selfish it is a selfless state. Start small and build your way.

The Present

Today I finally began reading Eckhart Tolle’s Power of Now. I bought that book for myself on my birthday (June 3rd).

I have become inspired with what I was reading so I would love to share you with what I learn from this book and other readings. Every Friday I will publish a quote from Eckhart Tolle and a snippet about what that quote means to me. I shall call it Eckhart Tolle Fridays.

I would strongly encourage anyone to read his books.

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”

I only have this moment – embrace it. Like a butterfly it can no longer turn back into a caterpillar it is meant to spread its wings and soar above the ground. It can fly more freely when it lets go of the past, doubts and worries. And why should I waste my energy worrying about the uncertainty of the future? It hasn’t happened yet. I am cutting ropes from the past and the future. There’s no need to wander. I am free.

I am living in the now.

Stay present. Let everything else go.
