Acceptance of one’s life has nothing to do with resignation;
it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary,
it means accepting it as it comes,
with all the handicaps of heredity,
of psychological complexes and injustices.
~ Paul Tournier
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don’t resist them;
that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
~ Lao Tzu

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life,
live in the moment,
live in the breath.”
“Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
~ Victor Frankl
Note: Severe anxiety takes a lot more than a couple of quotes to make it better. These are just thoughts one can try to keep in mind.

What is the difference between “I like you”
and “I love you”?
Beautifully answered by Buddha:
“When you like a flower, you just pluck it.
But when you love a flower, you water it daily.”
“The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention.
When mindfulness embraces those we love,
they will bloom like flowers.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh

“Health is a large word.
It embraces not the body only,
but the mind and spirit as well;…
and not today’s pain or pleasure alone,
but the whole being and outlook of a man.”
~ James H. West
“The secret of health for both mind and body
is not to mourn for the past,
not to worry about the future,
or not to anticipate troubles,
but to live the present moment
wisely and earnestly.”
~Siddartha Guatama Buddha
