Mindfulness Reminder

I saw this quote in my mindfulness book. I thought it was a lovely and powerful quote about mindfulness. I wanted to share it and say something about it.

It is important to be reminded of what mindfulness is, even with years of mindfulness practice. I sometimes get lost in mindlessness. I really love the quote above. Its all about learning to live in the present, so one can find inner peace and calmness. Living in the past creates sadness, frustration, guilt, regret and sorrow. Living in the future creates stress, tension, anxiety and worry. We can always use the past as a tool to learn and grow, and we can use the future to set goals for ourselves, but clinging to the past or future should be avoided for your mental health and peace of mind.

Quote Thursday


It is always interesting what thoughts come to mind when I see inspirational/motivational quotes. My thoughts from this one.

Immerse in the silence and be mindful. There are great lessons learned in silence. Reflection, insight, clarity, and knowledge can be gained from silence. Try not to be afraid of it, embrace it instead.

Now think about what this quote brings to mind from your stand point?

Mindfulness Thought of the Day

“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.”-Joseph Campbell

Life is unpredictable. There is nothing wrong with having goals, but one should not have an all or nothing mentality. Let life take you where it takes you. When one gets stuck on a plan, and it doesn’t come true. It can lead to sadness, anxiety, depression, anger etc,. Just remember to let life flow, and enjoy the ride.
