Tiny Wisdom: On Yesterday

Tiny Wisdom: On Yesterday

“Letting go of the past means that can you enjoy the dream that is happening right now.” -Don Miguel Ruiz

If you’re lost in your head, rehashing or obsessing, you miss all the little things that make life feel full and satisfying.

You don’t notice the small gestures that show people love you; they seem like everyday courtesies that don’t warrant consideration. You don’t acknowledge the trees and flowers that make your space beautiful; they fade into your peripheral vision like part of the furniture.

The little things are the big things. Happiness is paying attention. Give yourself permission to let go of everything that stands in the way of life’s tiny beauties. Dwelling on the past won’t change what’s already happened. Worrying about the future won’t make it any less unpredictable.

Let yourself enjoy today. It’s the tomorrow you dreamed about yesterday.
