16 Motivating Mindfulness Quotes to Start Your Day With

A good quote is a shot of pure inspiration and wisdom. Quotes are like a snap-shot into a deeper idea, philosophy or notion. Quotes give us a snippet of something to marinate on as we go about our daily lives. They cause us to ponder, laugh, smile and think about the ideas that can motivate, inspire, encourage and help us grow as human beings. The 15 quotes below are some of my most favorite quotes about mindfulness.  Some of them are even a part of our philosophy here at Soul Carrier. I hope you enjoy them and take the time to ponder and think about the positive impact they could have on your life.

True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness.

"If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. Daring is not saying "I'm willing to risk failure." Daring is saying "I know I will eventually fail, and I'm still ALL IN. I've never met a brave person who hasn't known disappointment, failure, even heartbreak” - Brene Brown 

Vulnerability is not about winning or losing. It's having the courage to show up even when you can't control the outcome.” “It is so much easier to cause pain than feel pain.” - Brene Brown

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor, and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion.

Jacks
