So, do not ruminate over the election results. Past hurt loses its grip on you, if you decide not to ruminate over it.
“The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success” – Paramahansa Yogananda.
Come to an acceptance of the situation and use this opportunity to transform your life.
The future holds promise if you let go of the past. Learn from the past, stay in the present and plan for the future.
Your inquiry into the future can be endless and it is often fear-driven. Don’t Fall into that trap. Realize that future is just a figment of your imagination. It’s not real and is not yet here.
A calm mind is a wise mind and will guide you to a bright future. When you are stressed and restless it can lead to major health problems like heart attacks.
So, Practice calmness and it will protect you.
Living in the present moment eliminates stress from your life. Know that there is only one moment—this moment.
The next moment has not come yet. What ever happened a moment ago is no longer present. So, just live in the moment.
