quote of the day……………….

“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice 10 years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty in remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh.  (a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist.)

  1. So very true, it’s only since I started to meditate and practice mindfulness that I have truly lived.
