Welcome to season 2…, Mindful Quotes, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. A series of my own fresh and original inspirational quotes…. Of course, we can all benefit from being inspired…, and many of us have our favorite quote. 

Some of you may be searching for yours…. That one quote that inspires you to be a better, healthier, and happier You…. Of course, Success as well…, embodies these attributes. 

There is a quote here for almost everyone. Listen for yours.

Hello. I am William Garcia, Philosopher, author of the book titled, Now O’ Clock. Being Mindful, it Always is, and…, your host.

Being a Mindfulness practitioner…, and before I open with the quote of this day, I invite you to join me in a mindfulness affirmation… Ready…. First…, take a deep breath with me…. That felt good, right? Now…, repeat after me…, It is Now O’ Clock…. I am… I am here … I am here now… I am open to be inspired.  

Now…, let’s take another deep breath.

Of course…, you can affirm your mindfulness and do the breathing exercise on your own or with someone else, and I strongly recommend you do. Make it at least a twice daily routine. But if you also want to do it with me…, let’s do it.

 I believe this mindfulness affirmation will help tune your sense of presence…, your mindful sense of presence in the only occasion that matters in your life…Now.

It is Now O’ Clock…, time for the quote of this day.

 It is something you hear at a funeral. He or she would want you to go on with life and be happy. What you don’t usually hear, is how. Is there a way?

Today’s quote is titled: A LIVING MONUMENT

“Make the story of your Life moving forward, a living Monument to the memory of your late Love, unquote.

Like many of you, I have been given similar advice and, in the moment, the words were thoughtful and consoling. They inspired hope, right?

But the grieving process and time, is different for everyone, and each come through with their own emotional scars; scars that are, to me, worth cherishing.

However, what we all have in common is life and the opportunity to choose how we live moving forward. 

We may get back to what we were doing before, or start with a new perspective, appreciation for life and new way of living it. 

If you are not aware, the reality is that you are always new; scars and all. What is also new, is a life without your late loved one.

In my case, I liked golfing a lot, but life happened as it did. I had to shift priorities and adapt a fresh perspective about my life and the life of our daughters who had just turned 11 years old.

I am still me, but with new stories being written, moment to moment, in the unfinished manuscript on the canvas of Time. Stories that continue to be inspiring and positive. Stories that include, Arttextry.com, Inc., the home of my Arttextry Posters, Certification as a Life Coach, my book, Now O’ Clock. It always is. Its revision, Now O’ Clock. Being Mindful, it Always is, and this you are listening to, my podcast, Minding Your Mind. 

These stories were not planned or even contemplated at the time. They were born out of the force of life. A force that moved me to continue to be a positive and helpful influence in the ways, and through the media I use to communicate with you; my website, nowoclock.live, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. 

At nowoclock.live you can find my book, my Arttextry posters, my blog , fresh and original inspirational quotes and this podcast.. 

Simply put, my words; the words I love to share with you. Words I hope inspires you to be a better You, living a better life.

My life has indeed become a living monument to my late love. It is an inspiring, purposeful, loving, and healthy life.

 Make your life a living monument to your late love, whomever they may be. A life that need only to be positive, helpful, and kind; a better you, living a better life. Cheers!
