Quote of the Day

Mindfulness: Taking a balanced approach to negative emotions so that feelings are neither suppressed nor exaggerated.  We cannot ignore our pain and feel compassion for it at the same time.  Mindfulness requires that we not "over-identify" with thoughts and feelings, so that we are caught up and swept away by negativity.

-- Brene Brown, Daring Greatly, p. 132
