Quote of the Day:
Instead of waiting, we can generate joy – Thich Nhat Hanh (How To Eat)
We do spend a lot of time waiting, waiting in line, waiting for our laundry to be finished, waiting for this pandemic to be over.
And most of the time we dread this time in between, the time when we do not have yet, that which we want. But what if I told you that the secret to being happy is to transform your time of waiting into a time of being present?
Look there is so much joy in the present moment, so much to be grateful for, so much to feel, to sense, to smell, to taste, learn and experience, that instead of focusing on the waiting – the not yet having of whatever you are waiting for to occur – we have the chance to recognize that which is right in front of us, at this very second.
If you stop focusing on the waiting just for a little while, you can hear the giggle of a child somewhere, feel the peacefulness of a quiet morning, or recognize the opportunity to be kind and loving to someone who may need it.
The space in between asking and receiving – the time of waiting – is a beautiful opportunity for happiness, I no longer want you to miss.
