Remembering to be mindful of positive feelings too

I'm finding that I often forget to practice mindfulness when I'm experiencing positive feelings -- I tend to use it as a coping mechanism to help me deal with negative emotions.  It's possible that I might not be the only one who does this so I thought I'd remind everyone to take a moment to be mindfully present when you're feeling good too!

Here are a few quotes:

"People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong.  Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?"
-Thich Nhat Hanh
This is what I was just talking about in my post!!!  I think it should be my mantra for the day:-)
"You only lose what you cling to."

"Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional."
-The Dalai Lama

"The chief cause of suffering for human beings is an inability to have things be the way they are."

"If you desire to know where your spiritual work lies look to your emotional pain."
-Alan Cohen
