One of my close friends from high school just shared a quote with me that I wanted to send along:
This quote comes from the Dalai Lama about what suprises him most:
“Man, because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
I think this quote is great- especially in your 20s I think it’s easy to say “I’ll have time to do yoga/go hiking/do something fun when I get this next promotion/finish my degree/get into a residency program” but really…what else is more important than maintaining a life? Isn’t that what it’s all about in the long run?
