“Do not lose yourself in the past. Do not lose yourself in the future. Do not get caught in your anger, worries or fears.Come back to the present moment, and touch life deeply. This is mindfulness.”
Thich Njat Hanh
“The day you stop worrying will be the first day of your new life; anxiety takes you in circles, trust in yourself and become free.”
“Don’t believe every worried thought you have. Worried thoughts are notoriously inaccurate.”
As Wendy indicated, I will drop by from time to time to do the Mindfulness Monday post.
Finding mindfulness quotes concerning worry was an excellent therapeutic exercise.
As an added bonus because I really like the idea:
“Worry is a misuse of your imagination.”

Filling in for Wendy — going to be a guest contributor on a regular basis — for Mindfulness Monday. As I’ve been worrying alot, exploring mindfulness and worry was very therapeutic. It can be hard to be mindful when your mind is full of worried thoughts.
Your image is so beautiful. You have such a unique eye, an enviable quality in a photographer.
Thank you for your take on Mindfulness Monday.
Worry is a very worthy subject! You know how much it can get to both of us.
“Don’t worry….Be happy” ~Bob Marley 🙂
Those lyrics did come to mind and Bobby McFerrin – Don’t Worry Be Happy video.
