10 Totally Mindful Mantras from Totally Awesome 80’s Movies!

Posted on: September 27, 2016

A nice article I came across “10 Totally Mindful Mantras from Totally Awesome 80’s Movies!

Personally like #1, #5 and #7 the most:


1. “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” (from Dirty Dancing)

This one reminds me of the famous Eleanor Roosevelt quote: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

No one can put you in a corner you don’t want to be in. You are in control. But…


5. “I’ll be back.” (from The Terminator)

Because everything will be back, even shoulder pads, apparently (gag me with a spoon!). Everything is fluid and ebbing and flowing and shifting and changing. Sadness will visit again. Happiness will visit again. It’s the human (and cyborg) condition.

7. “How many of them really know what they want, though? I mean, a lot of them think they have to know, right? But inside they don’t really know, so… I don’t know, but I know that I don’t know.” (from Say Anything)

It’s okay to not have all the answers. No one does. I mean, did any of us everactually solve the Rubik’s cube? Lovable Lloyd Dobler is clearly channeling Socrates as he rambles. Socrates said, “True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.”

Be mindful of what you don’t know. Be open and aware so that you may learn more.
