The Mind Alone

It’s not the place nor the condition but the mind alone that can make anyone happy or miserable.

Roger L’ Estrange

There was a time when my grief was so big and consuming that I had a hard time bringing myself to a positive mindful place. I think it’s healthy to grieve and important to welcome and respect yourself through the stages of grief. I say that because It’s not always about being happy. I write about positivity a lot. But learning how to allow myself to be sad and depressed was a big part of my journey. It’s silly to shame ourselves for our true feelings. If you’re sad, it’s ok. If you’re tired and depressed, it’s ok. It’s no one’s job to understand why. And it’s no one’s job to change your feelings. Those are yours. On the flip side, it’s always nice when we feel understood and when we feel that our voice is heard.

Great quote great thoughts came from it.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
