A Day Without Regrets

A Day Without Regrets

Guilt is wasted emotion. It’s understandable to feel bad when unfortunate situations unfold or when our actions unintentionally hurt another. But when those pangs of remorse well up inside us, and we start wishing we had never made the choices we did, we must remind ourselves that we did so in full control of our faculties. That doesn’t mean we’re justifying our decisions as correct. It’s merely saying we’re taking responsibility and recognizing our current reality is the one we’re meant to be living. Taking chances, trusting our instincts, following our passion creates the world we really want, and deserve.

Trivial Concerns Fade

Trivial Concerns Fade

Our cares, wants, and worries are all so different when we are happy. The peace we experience assuages the most excessive, and often destructive, cravings and mollifies the nagging, trivial concerns that pervade our day-to-day lives. It is not a great mystery that this is why we spend so much time searching for happiness. Even if only for a few moments, the equanimity we find when engaged and content gives us freedom and independence. We want what we have and have what we want. We no longer question and just accept and appreciate who and where we are.
