…being present is not about trying to be present or mindful as much as it is about allowing whatever happens to just happen. That is, I can allow things to happen without reacting to them or trying to make things the way I think they should be.
To be happy and at peace, you don’t need to be thin or rich or possess any certain characteristics or personal qualities. You don’t need to have everything just the way you think life should be. I challenge you to figure out a way to say, “I am the happiest person I know.” Take the risk and watch your life change.
