Let Go of Your Old Nonsense!

This week I'm focused on another terrific quote from Darren Main (you can sign up for his quote-of-the-day emails at his website; click to sign up for his e-newsletter, and then check the box for "Daily Wisdom").

"Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I just love this. Who doesn't need to let go of some old nonsense? Give yourself a break. Treat yourself with the same kindness you bestow on the others in your life. Cultivate this letting go and forgiveness on your yoga mat, and see if you can't take that same idea out into the rest of your day. Better yet, see if you can take it even further and begin each new moment serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with the past. It's a tall order, but, the more you try, the more success you'll have.

Namaste!
