live in the moment.

Sometimes we are our own worst enemies.

I am a planner. I don’t like uncertainty. But throughout the years, I’ve learned through circumstances beyond my control, to live in the moment.

There’s nothing wrong with planning. But sometimes it can lead to unnecessary worry. We often worry about things that never happen. We get ourselves all worked up about the unknown.

Live in the moment and enjoy it. Even when things are tough. Especially when things are tough.

Practice it. Set aside those things you cannot control. The sun is going to come up tomorrow. The stars are positioned as always. Life is much bigger than you.

Breathe.
