When you start to think about all the most important things that have happened in your life, you may find that they came about by chance.

Think of the people in your life who mean the most to you. How did they come into your life?
You may work hard to achieve a certain result, and in fact something else quite surprising occurs.
Life has a way of unfolding naturally and providing what you need at the right time.
If you try and force things to happen before time,  you will only experience stress and anxiety.
When you have trust and 'let go' life works beautifully.
Try not to be hard on yourself. 
Think of all that you have achieved, rather than focusing on what you haven't done.
We could all make very long lists of what we haven't done and the list will never get shorter. But the list of what we have done will always only get longer.
There is nothing to be done other than to allow life to flow as naturally as possible. Don't create barriers,  rather always be open to new opportunities.
There is no set path. As a stream flows down a mountain, it will weave this way and that and always find the path of least resistance.
There is no need to always be busy.
Certainly be busy for periods of time, but please allow for plenty of quiet contemplation and relaxation.
We are here to enjoy this amazing opportunity. We were not placed here in order to just continually be busy, that makes no sense.
We all have a unique task and that will become clear when we allow ourselves to listen and be open to whatever may come along.
Please slow down as much as you can and allow life to unfold naturally.
There is no rush,
no need to race.
All will evolve
at a gentle pace

Thich Nhat Hanh 

Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. 
It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly alive, present and at one with those around you and with what you are doing. We bring our body into harmony while we wash the dishes, drive the car or take our morning shower.
