‘Joy comes from touching things that are refreshing and beautiful, within and outside of ourselves.’
‘Let tiny drops of stillness fall gently through your day.’
‘The most precious thing we can give to another is our presence, which contributes to the collective energy of mindfulness and peace.’
‘Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.’ Thich Nhat Hanh
Most of us can probably think of places which feel special to us in some way.
We don’t always need to find new strategies for ‘solving’ life. Sometimes, simply creating some intentional silence and space might be enough.
‘Silence is essential. We need silence, just as much as we need air, just as much as plants need light.’
The gentle half smile is a way of bringing positive energy into our day, of lifting our spirits without necessarily trying to radically change our underlying feeling state.
Mindfulness, at its heart, is about taking good care of our lives, living it with a sense of presence and love.
‘Breathing in, I calm my body,
Breathing out, I smile.
