Confucius said “And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.”
I also love Mark Twain, such an inspirational writer with a lovely outlook on life. I really think this quote can be a lesson for us: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
I always believed If you’re not where you want to be right now, take the time to visualize yourself in the place you want to be and take the first step in that direction. You may not be able to change your destination in a day, but you can change your direction right now. Keep moving along this new path and it will eventually lead you to your destination. You are right here, right now, breathing. Enjoy it.
You’ve got nothing to do today except to smile. Happiness is valuing what you have, and enjoying the people, places, objects and events in your life for what they are. It’s not about changing and achieving all the time, it’s about being and appreciating. And you can nearly always enjoy the things happening around you if you make up your mind firmly that you will.
