Mindfulness mindset

Mindfulness mindset



The following post was originally shared on  JMgallery where I curate art, photography, images that speak to me.  Today, these depictions focus on mindfulness which is an art within itself.  The above captures my positive mindset and peaceful focus to allow me to become present in the NOW.  To be appreciative of the WOW!  Yes the quote and the image harmoniously flowed together to create a positive vibe sent out to the universe.  I can't do anything constructive about my woes at the moment so you allow it to drift away.  Efficiently filed to be handled effectively, like you usually do.  



The art of mindfulness
Practicing the art of mindfulness is a lot harder than it sounds.  In principle, you are meant to focus on this minute, this second.  Building awareness of all things, people, events happening around you in the moment for the moment.  Discipline and meditation are definitely helpful to reach this art of being at peace with oneself in the universe.  Forgiving, forgetting and forgoing any despondency or regrets, do differently, and if only I had.



Visually, it is easier to center on yourself in the moment.  I've gathered some art to forget bitter memories, beating up one's self for mistakes and least of all removing worry about tomorrow.  All you have is this moment.  



You ARE lucky.
You are here, you are now.  What you do differently this very second can bring inner peace and thankfulness for what you have.  No allowances for reflections of moments gone past, or fervour on what you desperately want tomorrow.  All you have is today.



What can you do differently?
Discarding annoyance is a favor you gift to yourself.  Opening up your mind and heart to others that may seem different to you is a gift of mindfulness.  


Discover the secret
Let the past melt away.  Forget about goals, dreams, wants, needs.  What do you have in this present moment?  Eyesight to enjoy beautiful images, hands to create beauty, ears to hear melodies that sing to your soul.  



Beauty: from within
Is harmony between the heart and the soul, joined in symphony to bring inner peace.  The best thing you can do is listen to your favorite music and gaze upon and marvel at the little things that center you, dissuade you from dwelling on the past or striving for that which is beyond reach.

A Pictorial Post

Flash back to the 80s and 90s when I was an advertising sales representative.  We didn't have fancy titles, the title of where we worked in the media was our badge of honor.  Mine was magazines.  How I love the smell of the ink without the annoyance of a whole lot of black stuff rubbed on my thumb and index finger.  

Some words float out of me as part of those days.  I'll have to root through and find some of my favorite projects and share on ThePublisher blog that I created to talk about publishing.  It is a topic I love in the act of sharing information and making the world a more beautiful place.

A Pictorial, as I recall, and before I go to the ever-handy WIKIpedia for the answers ::..... is an editorial piece that is almost all visual photography, imagery or art with only captions below minimally.  It allows the viewer to absorb and take in the image fleetingly capturing where your eyes fall upon.  Comments unnecessary, yet impossible if you are its creator, who happens to l…

Things that will make you think and say "huh"

I was looking around, surfing the net and was wandering indiscriminately around based on the various links that are emailed to me.  I guard my email address in such a way that I have everything organized, categorized.  It is important that when I subscribe to a site, that it does something for me.  Personally.  Not my husband, nor my family nor my employer.  It is my time.  Yes, it makes me a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, employee when I do so.  

What I see and what I post are random and make me mentally say "huh".  Not loudly as an acclamation "HUH!!" nor drawn out with puzzlement as in "huH??"  Just a small registration, like a blip, I mentally register with a "huh".  As in, interesting, let me read more.

You would think that as a person you have to be guarded and wary of giving too much of yourself away, to be taken unawares and exposed to danger, inconvenience, unwarranted attention, unsolicited retention.  

Imagine being a compa…

Triumph over struggle

This blog was originally written earlier today (Saturday, March 4, 2017) on my optioneerJM blog on Word Press ~ where I find an atmosphere of support and celebration of original writing among those who write themselves.  It is the highest compliment any fledgling writer can have.Like most of us at the tail end of Baby Boomers while being drowned out by Millennials, we're trying to get ahead.  Achieve success, notoriety or acclaim.  Subsidize our career choices with our inner voices.  To help others, to help ourselves.  To exhaust our demons by writing and exhuming scars that life has left on our brains.Confidence or competenceA struggling battle between what we want to express and be appreciated for our words.  So many of us write to right the struggles we have fought, the wars we have lost, the lessons we have learned.Gratitude: pitiful compensationWe appreciate the acknowledgement by others who are in chained to the common goal:  of being paid for our words.  What a steep mounta…
