    These are great reminders. I’d never thought about the shifts that occur in traffic as well. I have horrible anxiety when driving so I’ll be reaching for one of these tomorrow afternoon.

      Great! I often use half of the Thich Nhat Hanh quote “conscious breathing is my anchor” in these situations.

    I often ask myself if what I’m dealing with will matter in 5 years, 5 months, or even 5 hours. I like that quote and use it often. However, I’d never heard “Nature does not hurry but yet everything is accomplished.” ~ Lao Tzu. I really like that and your explanation. The beautiful things in life can and should happen without the rush and pressure we create. I think I’ll borrow this. Thanks!!

    ”Will this matter five years from now? If yes, then do something about the situation. If no, then let it go.”
    “Done is better than perfect.”
    SOOOO TRUE! These two should be my mantras 😀

      Glad you got something out of the post. Having them as mantras can help. I often say “conscious breathing is my anchor” when I need to find calm.

    Oh, I LOVE these quotes! What a wonderful way to reflect and calm that inner storm. I’m a generally anxious person, so these are very applicable. The one that spoke to me today the most was: ”Will this matter five years from now? If yes, then do something about the situation. If no, then let it go.” Thanks for these important reminders. I’ve pinned them to keep them fresh 🙂

    The last few days have been a bit stressful with the kids, so these sayings came at a good time. I do need to remember that these days go by fast and I won’t remember them a month from now.

    “Better done than perfect” is like a saying I just heard, “Better done than none.” I really enjoy it. I think it is my new motto… At least for blogging. 🙂

    “Done is better than perfect” is something I have to repeat to myself all the time!

    PRAGMATIC and enables one to thing and connect themselves with reality. More chances it can get into Blood rather staying at eye level alone. What i mean is the chances of forgetting it slower unlike the other quotes that we come across in our way. Thanks

    “In the light of all eternity, what does this matter?” I learned this from a wise older coworker many years ago and it has gotten me through many tough moments. I love your article. I will be adding several of these quotes to my daily affirmations!

    Words of wisdom… and thank you for posting them. This is the one that I always use and tell my son when troubled times are upon us: “This too shall pass,”and it always does leaving us wiser/stronger for the experience. Blessings to You!

    The first quote about breathing is so true for me too. I recently found how helpful that is when my mind is running too fast. It slows me down and reminds me of the reality that I will be okay.

    I find myself asking my husband to look at the big picture of things when choosing his battle with the kids. What will really matter when they are grown ups? These are great quotes! I shared on Facebook as well!

    Oh I love this post. I try always to live by the: Does it matter in 5 years from now quote. I think it’s a great way to find out what’s important and what’s not.
