There are moments when we feel lost, we feel confused, we don’t know what is the right thing to do. To fight back or not to fight back? To say something or not? To leave or to stay? We are confused. The best thing to do in that moment is to stop and go home to yourself with mindful breathing. Bringing awareness to our breathing, we calm down and have more clarity. In a state of confusion, fear can be born, and we may do things that make the situation worse. So the right thing to do is not to do anything. Just go home to yourself and practice mindful breathing in order to be your best. Because if you have enough tranquility, calm, and peace, the insight will come as to what is the best thing to say or do to help the situation. — Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #innerpeace #peace #mindfulbreathing #mindfulness #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
