Recently I've been feeling a little stressed about life. As a planner, sometimes I just yearn for constant assurance/knowledge of what's to come around the next bend. This quote by Edward Carpenter (English socialist poet, 1844-1929) is particularly good for those of us who tend to stress continuously about the next step (the kind of stress that keeps you up at night):

Let your mind be quiet, realising the beauty of the world, and
the immense, the boundless treasures that it holds in store.

All that you have within you, all that your heart desires, all
that your Nature so specially fits you for - that or the counterpart
of it waits embedded in the great Whole, for you. It will surely
come to you.

Yet equally surely not one moment before its appointed time
will it come. All your crying and fever and reaching out of hands
will make no difference.

Therefore do not begin that game at all.

I do need to be more patient. Good things do come if you really work hard and just keep persevering. plus you need to just enjoy the beauty of the world around you.
