A Strategy to Master Inner Communication: Living in the Present

Each week brings new challenges and tasks, whether it’s time with family, or projects in graphic design and publishing. Once in awhile, doubt creeps into my psyche around being on the “right” path. When that happens, this quote from the Dalai Lama helps me release doubt from my inner banter and concern myself with the things that matter today. “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Is there a quote or memory you have that helps relieve your worry and enjoy the present? Please take a minute to share it with me in the comments below.
