Quote for the weekend

“Living through fear keeps us far away from peace. One of the keys to shift from a survivalist mentality to a peaceful one that can help us thrive, is the intentional building of present moment awareness. Fear and anxiety are driven by our concern about what may happen in the future, patiently bringing ourselves back to the present moment will remove the energy that is building up in these imaginary future narratives that are not based in reality.”
