  1. This quote gets me through a lot.
    “Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different;
    enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will);
    being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).” ~James Baraz

    I really need to remember that today.

  2. One of my practices is the overcoming of fear and the idea of limitation. A great inspiration to me in this practice are Special Operations soldiers who go through a tremendously challenging selection, then training process, where mindset is more important than physical strength. My husband was a Special Forces soldier (Green Beret). He is an inspiration. His favorite motto:

    “It’s mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.”

    Other words of inspiration for me:

    Motto of the SAS (Special Air Service, British ‘Special Forces’):
    “Who Dares Wins”

    Unknown:
    “Only those who risk going too far will ever know how far they can go.”

    We are capable of so much more than we think we are.

  3. Thank you for all this info, and for the great quote. Who is it?

    One of my favorite quotes that’s been very present with me recently is, ‘There are no great things, there are only small things done with great love.’ That’s Mother Teresa. 💖

    1. Thanks for sharing! I can see why it’s one of your favourites. Mother Teresa is a magnificent soul.

      “You have seen my descent now watch my rising.” is by Rumi. Based on your blog, I bet you know his work well.🌷

        1. OMG, me too, me too!! I just listened to Rising Strong and Big Magic this past year, both at least twice. In fact, I listened to Big Magic right before the AtoZ Challenge started this month, and it really helped me get over my fears and hesitations. Because of that inspiration, I have taken more risks with my writing during this challenge than I ever thought I would! Hooooraaaaaaaayy!! 😀 I also signed up for Brene Brown’s Living Brave Semester, which I think may be over already, and I’m still working on the second week’s lessons… Oh well, it’s always a work in progress! So glad to connect to you all here! 😀
