I recall my parents telling me to
“mind my own business”
a time or two as a child.
They were not just trying to keep me from things they felt I should not be dealing with, but were also trying to teach me a valuable lesson in life:
that life is much more satisfying, fulfilling, and pleasing when we mind our own business.
Concerning myself in the affairs of others, trying to help them avoid mistakes, and trying to control their actions, needlessly wastes my energy and potential.
Their lives are their lives to live… and their choices are their choices to make.
? Internal harmony ?
is achievable when we quietly and calmly invest ourselves in our own matters, thus freeing our mind, body, and spirit from external worries.
? “Sit still and mind your own business.” ?
