Be Where You Are

“As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.”
–Buddha

I know this to be true; I’ve missed so much because I’ve spent the majority of my life daydreaming about the future and ruminating about the past.  These simple words (that aren’t simple at all) hold the key to happiness and contentment, I think, and in the new year I am going to strive to live this way.  Happy or sad, I need to be in the moment.

    Ahhh . . . wonderful Buddha. So simple, so filed with wisdom, and so blasted difficult to attain most of the time in our hectic lives! May you succeed in doing so 🙂 Peace . . .
