Mindfulness means paying attention in a certain way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. This kind of attention nurtures greater awareness, clarity, and acceptance of present-moment reality. It wakes us up to the fact that our lives unfold only in moments. If we are not fully present for many of those moments, we may not only miss what is most valuable in our lives but also fail to realize the richness and depth of our possibilities for growth and transformation.

A diminished awareness of the present moment inevitably creates other problems for us as well through our unconscious and automatic actions and behaviors, often driven by deep-seated fears and insecurities. These problems tend to build over time if they are not attended to and can eventually leave us feeling stuck and out of touch. Over time, we may lose confidence in our ability to redirect our energies in ways that would lead to greater satisfaction and happiness, perhaps even to greater health.

Tell me bout your momma, your daddy, your hometown, show me around, I wanna see it all, don’t leave anything out. I wanna know everything about you, I wanna go down every road you’ve been. Where your hopes and dreams and wishes live where you keep the rest of your life hid. Take me there.

"Men, you’ll never be a good groom to your wife unless you’re first a good bride to Jesus."

"Delete his number.
Scream into your pillow, punch it a few times afterwards.
Curl up into a ball and cry.
Cry until your hands are shaking and your body is trembling and you can’t cry anymore.
Look in the mirror. Observe the beauty you hold, I can promise you it’s there.
If you can’t find it, look harder.
You’re better than the messages he never sent, or the times he promised you a date but never showed up.
Buy yourself flowers, find similarities between them and yourself.
Wash your hair three times a week.
Run your fingers through it over and over again while it’s still wet.
Cry again; cry so hard you forget to breathe.
Go for a walk until you can breathe again.
When you want to hurt yourself, don’t.
You’re not the reason he left.
When you add his number again, forgive yourself.
Delete it again.
Delete it until you’re strong enough to sleep alone in your own bed without images of his lips crossing your mind.
Wear whatever the fuck you want.
Don’t wear makeup, it’s hiding your perfection.
If you sleep all day, that’s good.
If you wake up at 5am, that’s also good.
Don’t punish yourself for any decisions you make; you made them for a reason.
Love yourself.
Love yourself so fucking much, because one day someone else’s love will overpower it and you’ll miss the opportunity.
You’ll lose yourself,
And sometimes that’s okay.
Cherish what is around you right now.
Don’t give up a tomorrow for another yesterday."

- You’ll be alright, darling. (jpzg)
