Practicing mindfulness allows us to consciously appreciate every moment we get to live. It helps us control our thinking patterns and stay aligned with our goals. It makes us feel more alive!
Forget yesterday – it has already forgotten you. Don’t sweat tomorrow – you haven’t even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift – today.Steve Maraboli
