I can't tell you how many times I have lived in torment of regret for things that I could have done and that I felt I should have done. Undeniably these regrets robbed me of the present moment and I seemed to live my life either in the future or in the past and never really enjoying what is actually happening right now. I woke up one day and realised that I had lost years of my life living in this manner and I can't deny that I didn't feel emotional about this fact. I felt sad because life was passing me by and I wasn't noticing all the miracles that were occurring in each moment. This realisation in itself sent me on a new journey of discovery. I discovered it would be massively beneficial for my well-being if I learnt to live in the present moment and accept that if it should have, then it would have. That new way of seeing things eventually brought me peace knowing that things are and always were exactly the way they are meant to be.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
