“Turn your demons into art, your shadow into a friend, your fear into fuel, your failures into teachers, your weaknesses into reasons to keep fighting. Don’t waste your pain. Recycle your heart.”
Delving for Mindfulness Monday quotes is very therapeutic. I find new mantras, viewpoints, concepts and challenging thoughts to ponder. I have several “file folders” on my computer stuffed with “left-overs;” quotes that didn’t appear in the final draft of a post.
The new year: a time to declutter; to re-heat frozen left-overs from holiday feasts; to continue the spirit of giving and sharing.
To welcome a new mindfulness year, I’ve dipped into my cache of quotes. I hope you find one that resonates with you.
“Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
“If you get tired, learn to rest, not quit.”
“Wonder is a bulky emotion. When you let if fill your heart and mind, there isn’t room for anxiety, distress, or anything else.”
“Worry is a misuse of your imagination.”
“Into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul.
“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.”
“Good friends help you to find important things when you have lost them . . . your smile, your hope, your courage.”
I wish you a mindful, whimsical, playful, meaningful, exceptional, educational, experiential and hug-filled 2019.
“When it rains, look for rainbows. When it’s dark, look for stars.”
“Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense.”
