Mindfulness Monday: depression

I filled in for Wendy today using the theme she had chosen: depression.
A very apt exercise for me right now — looking for mindfulness quotes on depression

Picnic with Ants

“For me mindfulness is like building a house,

so, the next time the tsunami that depression is

comes, I’ll have a structure to resist it.”

Ruby Wax

“Regardless of how dark and downbeat

the places you may find yourself,

there always exists the potential

for another path.”

Richard Gilpin

“You don’t have to control

your thoughts.

You just have to let them

stop controlling you.”

David Millman

Mindfulness Monday: perception

Wendy wasn’t able to do Mindfulness Monday this week, so I posted for her (after midnight so it’s really Thoughtful Tuesday?). I was looking for different themes, but realized that perception was woven through many of the quotes I really liked.
Wendy is alright; as you know she has migraine issues and that can make looking at the screen extremely difficult for periods of time. So, I filled in when she found she couldn’t quite finish her post for Mindfulnes Mondays.
Feel better, sis.

Picnic with Ants

“Piglet noticed that even thought he had a small heart,

it could hold a rather large amount of gratitude.”

A. A. Milne

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

Dr. Seuss

“The moment one gives close attention to anything,

even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome,

indescribably magnificent world in itself.”

Henry Miller
