There’s something about yoga that I love. 

“Basically, if the mind stays in the present, it’s impossible to worry. Upon careful consideration, it becomes clear that human beings are capable of worrying only about an event that has already transpired or one that may take place in the future (although the occurrence might have just happened or may be about to happen in the next instant). The present moment contains no time or space for worry.” (H.E. Davey, Japanese Yoga)

What I’ve learned these last few years in my twenties is that worrying is too much to handle for me. I’ve learned to live in the present moment: appreciate what I have right now. Because worrying about the past popping up and making the same mistakes hinders my happiness and worrying about what will happen five years from now makes no sense. Yoga has helped me understand that life is happening right now and that I should be grateful for living in this moment. And the best part is that I have complete control of it. 

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.” #Buddha
