Mortal beauty

I’ll tell you a secret. Something they don’t teach you in your temple. The Gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again. – Achilles

Mondayitis No More: The Art of Happiness

These words from Olivia Bryant aka The Courageous Yogi resonated with me today:

The art of happiness requires making happiness a FIRM PRIORITY. So within the circumstances of your life, what could you do to prioritise your happiness today? For me: relaxing on needing to ‘get everything done’….and perhaps going to a cafe to read. x

Nothing like simply bringing awareness to what we need in the present moment. Thanks for the reminder Olivia!
