Sharing the Zen

Want to learn a few habits that can turn your life around and help you become more successful (but at the same time more centered, focused, and PRESENT)?

Then you  must read this blog: ZenHabits by Leo Babuta. It is considered one of the Top 25 blogs, and Top 50 websites in the world. The insights Leo provides are like little gems that can truly change your perspective and help you simplify and improve your life through building good habits.

Today’s post, titled How to Live Well, is a great post in its entirety, however, one point resonated really stronly with me since it’s been a focus area for me the past few weeks:

  • Be happy with what you have and where you are. Too often we want to be somewhere else, doing something else, with other people than whoever we’re with right now, getting things other than what we already have. But where we are is great! Who we’re with (including just ourselves) is already perfect. What we have is enough. What we’re doing already is amazing.

How amazing is that? How often do you find yourself thinking about how much better things would be if we got THAT job, had THAT kind of partner, THAT car, THAT salary, or were going to THAT place instead of being at home cleaning the house?

What a drag.

Join me in practicing how to love just where you are at this moment, and just what you’re doing at this moment, and allowing that to then bring whatever it will bring.

I’m willing to bet that by doing this, we will attract the kind of people and things we truly value and that truly value us.

    Have been a reader of his blog for about 2 years now. I have kept every one of his blogs in my Yahoo file since July of 2010, and really enjoy his philosophy about life and simplicity.

      And you didn’t tell me about him?!?! 2 years! I’m happy to hear that others beat me to “discovering” Zenhabits – what a way to give back to people!
