neither here nor there...

this hit a bit close to home for me:

have you ever been somewhere you didn't want to be? maybe it was a job, a town, or a relationship. maybe it was a stage in life, like singlehood, or a state in life, like a disability.

it's very possible that as you read this, you're wishing you were somewhere else – anywhere else – living a different life...

be mindful of being physically present but mentally somewhere else, thinking of the future or the past, thinking of someplace else. our journey with life requires we be fully present in the present.

you may feel like you're in exile, but the universe is still working in your life; the message to you is: dig in and fully embrace the life around you.

peace and blessings / love and light

do it anyway.

yes, yes. i'm a sucker for a quote that moves something in me ;-)

people are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
forgive them anyway.

if you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
be kind anyway.

if you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
succeed anyway.

if you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
be honest and frank anyway.

what you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
build anyway.

if you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
be happy anyway.

the good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
do good anyway.

give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
give the world the best you've got anyway.

you see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
it was never between you and them anyway.

-mother teresa

much love.

eat, pray, love...

"your treasure -your perfection- is within you already. but to claim it, you must leave the busy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of the heart."

"...it is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection." (from the bhagavad gita)

"meditate on whatever causes a revolution in your mind."

much peace and love yo.
