Emotions are like looking at the fuel gauge in your car. The gauge can tell you how much gas in in the car, but it won’t tell you the reason why it’s full or empty. To know that, you’ll have to dig deeper.

Most negative emotions are the result of misdirection. The particular thing you think you’re upset about isn’t really at the heart of the matter. In the end, everything boils down to this root question your subconscious mind is asking: Do I Feel Loved?

—from a journal entry I wrote 5 years ago #mindfulness

Going through a bit of a rough patch this month…reason isn’t important, but what is important is just how much I’m having to wrestle with my brain to stay positive and focused. I almost had a full-blown panic attack earlier this week because I let worry and dark ruminations get the better of me. But I’m making headway by challenging myself to get more sleep, spend more time on exercise, and do something creative and fun every day to recharge my batteries. Living in the now beats battling fictional tomorrows any day! #mindfulness
