When They Are Done, They Are Done

Free yourself from what you have. Relax yourself. You deserve to rest yourself. You are responsible for resting yourself. If you don’t need it, but your body needs it. If you don’t want to rest yourself, your soul will rest you. Why? Because you are active when your soul is in good shape. And to put your soul in good shape, you must learn to take a break. You must learn to detach yourself from negative thoughts.

Take care of yourself. You need it. Your body needs it. Your soul needs it. Some people will criticize you for taking care of yourself. Other people will support you for doing it. No matter what they say, they are not in charge of your life. You are your own boss. So use your power to take charge of your life. Stop attaching yourself to what you have. Stop protecting your material things. When they are done, they are done. When they are old, they are old. When it is time to let them go, let them go. It is their time to go. Do not fight to keep what you don’t need. Instead, fight yourself to detach yourself from your old negative thoughts. Life is not about attachment, but about detachment.

Detachment is life. Attachment is death. Detachment is healthy, is success, is freedom. Attachment is stress, is fear, is failure to let go. Detachment brings peace. Attachment brings panic, anxiety. That is why we suffer.

We suffer because we don’t know how to let go. Remember, you can buy anything you want, but you can’t keep everything you have. From now on, give away what you do not need. Detach yourself from old things. Detach yourself from old bad habits. Detach yourself from toxic friends. Detach yourself from your old negative thoughts. Detach yourself from fear, from hate. When you detach yourself from old things, new things will come to you. They will come to you. But to receive them, you must detach yourself from the old things.

Wherever You Are, Be There

Wherever you are, be there. You are where you are for a reason. Don’t ignore it, explore it. We don’t see what is around us because we are too busy to see it, to enjoy it. You are too busy to enjoy your wife. You are too busy to enjoy your life. You are too busy to read more books. You are too busy to take care of your body. You are too busy to go to your best friend’s birthday.

When are you going to slow it down?

It is time to slow down. It is time to evaluate your life. Why? Because if you don’t check what you are doing to yourself, to your life, to the people around you, you will continue with your busy life. Before you do anything, before you take on a new assignment, ask yourself, “Is it necessary?” Do not just do something to look good. Do something because it is necessary, but not urgent. Stop living your life on the road. Slow it down.

Slow your busyness down. If you want to live a better life, you must give yourself a full attention. When you are with yourself, be there. When you are with your wife, be there. When you are playing with your children, be there. When you are eating, just eat. When you are working, be there. Because every moment is important. Every moment is special. Enjoy it.

Spend quality time with yourself. Spend quality time with your soul. Do not take on more than you can do. Do not take on what you cannot do. Do not promise people what you don’t have. It is better. Take time to rest, to think, to read, to just connect with nature. Remember, you are not going to be here forever, so enjoy every moment of your life. Start now.
