Sharing a wonderful quote by Marcus Aurelius: The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
1. the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.
2. a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
I have always believed that mindset matters. Our minds are powerful beyond measure. Getting control over negative thinking and negative self-talk is the first step towards achieving your goals and becoming your best self.
We tell each other to count our blessings and look at the positives, but it’s easier said than done. Sometimes you have to wait for the storm to pass before the sun is primed to peak through the clouds. Don’t be afraid to weather the storm. To go through the darkness, to experience the pain, to touch complete failure.
It is with those deeply tragic moments that we rebirth ourselves into stronger, more courageous, mindful and empathetic individuals.
Always remember that your pain is your gift in the world. Your journey and story matters. Stay the course. ❤️
