Strong words for weakened situations — pain does that to you. Mindfulness to handle the pain.
“Radical acceptance means feeling sorrow and pain
“Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behavior.
Wendy’s mindfulness speaks strongly to me. These are the words I need to heed.
“The way is not the sky.
The way is in the heart.”
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
“Do not dwell in the past,
do not dream of the future,
concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

Words on loss — an emotion we all need to come to terms with at some point. Some, more than others.
“Everything that has a beginning, has an ending.
Make your peace with all that and all will be well.”
“Compassion invites us to open our heart
to everyone who experiences
joy and loss,
pleasure and pain,
hope and despair.
This includes ourselves.
