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.

 There are good memories and not so good ones. Good memories are wonderful thoughts about the good times, and it is all I want to talk about for now. I want to keep it positive.  Reminiscing about a happy time can put a smile on your face and a warm feeling in your heart.

Today’s quote is titled: LAST DRINK OF LIFE

As they say, “Savor the moment”. It may be your last drink of Life, unquote.

Like you, I have a lot of beautiful and happy memories, and there are those I wish I could experience at least once more. But I know, that is impossible. Even if I could re-enact a happy memory today, I would not be able to experience the same emotions. Nevertheless, it is not to say that a re-enactment could not make you emotionalize the moment…, it could. Still, I do not believe we can relive what or how we felt in the past. 

Every moment, and every experience have, what I call, its own life-print; its own DNA, so to speak. There is never a precise match. 

Close and the same, is not the same thing. But, you know, close is good enough for now. Because feeling happy remembering a happy time, is still a happy feeling. It is still what makes the moment a sip of life that taste good…, so good. 

Try this…, once a day…, and just for a moment…, reminisce about a happy time. You will be happy you did. Cheers!

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for…. That quote that ignites your passion and gears you up for achievement…, or…, it may be the quote that…, as you journey through life…, illuminates your path…, brings you peace…, love…, and happiness. Share what you find here with someone else. It may be a quote…, that for them…, may set them…, or keep them on a path to a better life.
