Eckhart Tolle is commonly referenced in my yoga studio, and this is one of the quotes that recently made it into one of our restorative classes.

I wouldn’t want to focus on it too often or too much, lest it lead to anxiety over possible loss of what I have, but I think being intentional about my awareness of just how fleeting life can be is not a bad exercise.

I have a tendency to take for granted the life I have, even though I practice near daily gratitude (5 Minute Journal). It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day and the to-do lists.

Every once in awhile, I take a moment, usually after being reminded by a quote like this, to just look at the people in my life and the things I have and say a quiet, internal thank you.

I’m also very guilty of looking back or forward more than I actively remain present.

I’m working on that.
