At this time of year it is so easy to forget our own needs and be overwhelmed by others needs and desires. Make a part of each day for self care and replenishment. You'll have more to give that way.


Greta...your words are exactly what I needed to read at this moment. While I gave up Holiday induced perfection some time ago, I haven't given up on perfection in other areas of my life - therein lies my current emotional state / my current pain.

Cherise found this for me and I have it taped to my computer monitor at work:

"Pain is your best friend. It is infiniely more honest with you than pleasure. Despite what you might think the painful experinences you have had benefit you far more than the pleasureable ones, even though most of us spend our lives trying to duck and hide from them. But when you can center yourself and be open to look pain dead in the eye, then you have transcended th elimits of your ego and this humanity. it is then that you enter into the possibilit of becoming a great being."

I equate "becoming a great being" to being able to be Still. At Peace. In Joy. Without Expectation.



"Let it go" are some powerful words to live by, and the only way to come out sane at the other end. It really isn't so much how much we do as it is how we do what we do. When reaching the end becomes a process rather than a journey, it's time to slow down.
