Mindfulness Monday – words I needed to hear

“Feel the feeling but don’t become the emotion.
Witness it.
Allow it.
Release it.”

~ Crystal Andrus

 

“You’re so hard on yourself.
Take a moment. Sit back.
Marvel at your life:
at the grief that softened you,
at the hearache that wisened you,
at the suffering that strengthened you.
Despite everything, you still grow.
Be proud of this.”

~ unknown

  1. Reblogged this on Lorraine's frilly freudian slip and commented:

    As is often the case, the words Wendy needs to hear are the ones I need to as well. As to becoming the emotion, guilty as charged. An easy slip, at times, when the feeling be it sadness, anger, grief, jealousy, rage, self-negativity overwhelms. Witness, allow, release — an important 3 word mantra.
    Despite everything, she still grows, and I am very proud of her.
