“Any confusion you experience has within it the essence of wisdom automatically. So as soon as you detect confusion, it is the beginning of some kind of message. At least you are able to see your confusion, which is very hard. Ordinarily people do not see their confusion at all, so by recognizing your confusion, you are already at quite an advanced level. So you shouldn’t feel bad about that; you should feel good about it.” -Chögyam Trungpa

Here are some daily quotes to breathe on. Now really breathe and and expand your breath from words to living in the moment. Wherever you go, there you are.
“Life’s blows cannot break a person whose spirit is warmed by the fire of enthusiasm.” -Norman Vincent Peale
“Your belief determines your action and your action determines your results, but first you have to believe.” -Mark Victor Hansen
“We must each lead a way of life with self-awareness and compassion, to do as much as we can. Then, whatever happens we will have no regrets.” -Dalai Lama
“Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day.” -Unknown
A Suspended Blue Ocean
Is a suspended blue ocean.
The stars are the fish
The planets are the white whales
I sometimes hitch a ride on,
And the sun and all light
Have forever fused themselves
Into my heart and upon
There is only one rule
On this Wild Playground,
For every sign Hafiz has ever seen
Reads the same.
They all say,
“Have fun, my dear; my dear, have fun,
In the Beloved’s Divine
O, in the Beloved’s
“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” -Rumi
“An eye is meant to see things.
The soul is here for its own joy.
A head has one use: For loving a true love.
Feet: To chase after.
Love is for vanishing into the sky. The mind,
for learning what men have done and tried to do.
Mysteries are not to be solved: The eye goes blind
when it only wants to see why.
A lover is always accused of something.
But when he finds his love, whatever was lost
in the looking comes back completely changed.”
“If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.” ~Mary Engelbreit
Challenge yourself to be positive today. Don’t feed into the rush around you and instead encourage others and yourself to notice how good things really are. Be positive and spread the joy!
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ~Albert Einstein
