“Rather than letting our negativity get the better of us,
we could acknowledge that right now we feel like a piece of shit
and not be squeamish about taking a good look.”

― Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times

 

“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible in us be found.”

― Pema Chödrön

Mindfulness Monday – Life

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

~ E.M. Forster

 

“Rather than being disheartened by the uncertainty of life,
what if we accepted it and relaxed into it?
What if we said,
‘Yes this is the way it is;
this is what it meant so be human,’
and decided to sit and down and enjoy the ride?”

~Pema Chödrön
