Appreciate the beauty of life

Be anxious in nothing and do every task as if it were the only task you had to do.

Learn to enjoy doing rather than finishing.

He who enjoys the doing proceeds with patience and begins to see beauty everywhere and in everything.

He who seeks only to finish never even enjoys the finishing but is always in a race against time.

Life becomes a tread mill to those who do not learn to enjoy the doing.

They are always in a hurry to get to where they are going and are in a hurry to leave when they get there.

They proceed with the rational that if only they could finish all the tasks on their check off list they would at last find a brief moment of happiness.

They become like unto a dog chasing it's own tail.

Brethren, take the time to appreciate the beauty of life.
