Slow down

I am a huge fan of quotes and cute pictures that refer to living in the moment. I think we all just need to slooow down sometimes. I also think it's human nature to over think things. But, every once in a while it's healthy, though a little terrifying, to just turn the voices in your head off, and let go. Have a little fun. Take a chance, because regret has got to be one of the worst feelings in the world.

So, here's some little gems related to living in the moment and letting go a bit.........

"Be where you are, otherwise you will miss your life"-Buddha



"Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace a test or flunk a class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourself. Breathe. And enjoy the ride." -Solbeam (i know I've posted this one before but it's a personal favorite of mine)

"There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills." -Buddha

"Don't take life too seriously. You'll never get out alive." -Bugs Bunny

"Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life." -Mary Manin Morrissey

"You can’t go through life thinking everyone you meet will one day let you down." -Angels in the Outfield

Totally unrelated, but this is living simply. I want to be there right now.
