My Favorite Mindfulness Quote

My Favorite Mindfulness Quote | mostly mindful mommy

I was recently asked to contribute to an article my favorite quote related to mindfulness and why it resonated with me. While it was difficult to choose just one from the many that are imprinted in my brain, I also immediately knew which it would be:

“Worrying is a way to avoid what is so by thinking about what could be.” — Judith Hanson Lasater (Living Your Yoga: Finding the Spiritual in Everyday Life)

Though I’ve encountered many bits of wisdom in my extensive consumption of spiritual literature, it’s the simplicity of this quote that has stuck with me through all these years. This quote found me during a period in my life when I was deepening my yoga practice, but had only begun to delve into meditation/mindfulness practices. It was the first time I fully realized how futile worrying actually is, and how costly a price we pay when it consumes our lives. I finally “got” what it meant to notice a thought or emotion, and then simply choose not to engage with it. To this day I’m still in awe of the power we reclaim when we become mindful of our reactions, and that’s why I’m passionate about teaching meditation and mindfulness to children. Imagine what’s possible for a world where everyone knew these truths from such a young age!

    Oh, this is a brilliant quote – and so true!

    My favourite quote is one I have tattooed on my wrist, beneath my watch strap: “This too shall pass.” I got it when I was mid breakdown.

    Thanks for linking up with the weekend blog hop!
