As long as you are wishing for things to change, they never will. As long as you’re wanting yourself to get better, you won’t. As long as you are oriented toward the future, you can never just relax into what you already have or already are.

  1. thanks for this - a timely reminder here

  2. I just teared up. It's so frustrating to know we can't wish for positive change, yet it will or will not come along with the negative. I'm slowly learning the here and now is all that matters; I just wish everyone else around me could learn that as well!

  3. Oh Jen, there are days and then there are days... sometimes I feel like I'm choking on the endless positive living advice I get dished up, ready to puke.
    But then again: never mind everyone else. It's you and you only. Positively, I mean.
