Sometimes we forget the small things. We just do. Life gets hectic. Schedules get busy. Stress affects our close relationships. And we forget how unbelievably lucky we are. 

For St. Paddy’s Day, let’s remember how lucky we are to be here. To be breathing. To be able to experience life, in any form that it presents itself. To view challenges as lessons and the happy moments as gifts. 

Below are a few quotes to help remind us what a miracle life is.

 

Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.

Lao Tzu

 

It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.

Eckhart Tolle

 

I know that the molecules in my body are traceable to phenomena in the cosmos. That makes me want to grab people in the street and say, Have you heard this!?

Neil deGrasse Tyson

 

We need much less than we think we need.

Maya Angelou

 

He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.

Socrates

 

The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.

This is the real secret of life – to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.

Alan Watts

 

We are the universe experiencing itself.

Carl Sagan

I started YogaHub out of a room at the back of someone else's house back in 2012 with nothing more than an idea. I'd been teaching Yoga since 2008 and had no intention of opening a Yoga Studio. I think, like everything I've done, I just decided one day I was going to give it a try. And try I did and if you're reading this I guess I'm still trying.
