Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has kept my emotions in check.
  • I grew up a very angry person with a lot of volatile tendencies but once I became a Christian and I really took scripture seriously and welcomed the Holy Spirit and empowered me to live right, everything changed.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing has become [more important]. I realize with my work schedule and all the craziness, sometimes I'm working at my desk and I think, am I really breathing. Then I pause and take a deep breath and then I realize I wasn't breathing. After that, the intensity of my breathing increases.
  • I've started running and when I'm running I pay more attention to my breathing.

Bullying Story

  • I went to boarding school. The older students were in charge of punishing students who were defiant and a lot of them took advantage of that to bully people.
  • Once when it was time for bed after I used the washroom, one the of the older students saw me and decided to punish me. He made me sleep on the wood floor under his bed. Mindfulness then for me was to just ignore him and at that point not respond.
