Mindful Mondays: Two Cents

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
— Buddha

Events come and go; a mighty plethora of them grasping and demanding our attention.

It’s easy to get lost in these events. Easy to let them crash angrily upon our shores like vicious waves.

It’s even easier to turn negative feelings caused by these events against our loved ones. Whether they were involved or not.

Today, let us take a moment to contemplate how we can prevent this.

If we feel compelled to turn upon a friendly face, pause and take a moment to breathe.

Ground yourself in the moment and grab hold of something you love; a feeling, a memory, an event.

Describe it to your loved one,

Let yourself be free.
