My Wish For You Today
May you find peace in your home.
And calm in your heart.
No matter the storm.
Psychology Thought for the Day
The goal isn’t to get rid of all our negative thoughts and emotions.
The goal is to change our response to them.
To accept them without judgement.
To transcend them when the time is right.
Mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation. “She accepted both the good and the bad with equanimity”.

We added two new members to our family before all this happened and they are providing wonderful therapeutic value. They are two small adult dogs that we adopted – a bonded pair. So grateful that they came into our lives at this time.
I love that so much VJ. I know the healing my sister’s “Teddy” therapy dog brings to her. Full circle HEALTHcare 🌎💙

You live this phrase via your writing Andrew. Transmuting (y)our pain into emPOWERment with every key stroke. 💥 #inthistogether
Thank you, Andrea. This was perfect advice for me today. Take care of you too.

From Focused and Fearless
Equanimity is steady through vicissitudes, equally close to the things you may like and the things you do not like.
Observe when the tendency to move away from what you do not like ends, and the tendency to hold on to what you like is equally absent.
Personal preference no longer dictates the direction of attention.
Equanimity contains the complete willingness to behold the pleasant and the painful events of life equally.
It points to a deep balance in which you are not pushed and pulled between the coercive energies of desire and aversion.
Equanimity has the capacity to embrace extremes without getting thrown off balance.
Equanimity takes interest in whatever is occurring simply because it is occurring.
Equanimity does not include the aversive states of indifference, boredom, coldness, or hesitation.
It is an expression of calm, radiant balance that takes whatever comes in stride.”
Mindfulness let’s us get out of our head and drop down into our heart
Observe your senses without judgment
