Quote of the day 5/28/2009

The best way out is always through. Robert Frost

I am too often guilty of working my way around but not through the issue. And avoidance is especially successful (As I tell my son-in-law, the view from Denial is exactly the picture I want to see). When in the midst of the problem why is it that, the truly easiest and most effective way out being "through", doesn't feel like the easiest option. Why does avoidance on any level feel more comfortable and often our choice of preference?

Any comments?

Love you all,

Quote of the day 5/20/2009

Few are those that see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts. Albert Einstein

Just a short time ago I would not have understood the meaning of this one. I was so consumed with what others thought, and saw that I did not focus at all on my own. Thank goodness that I am learning now to live in my own skin, assess with my thoughts and values. The silver lining for me in this lesson was; that I now judge others less than ever before and I am not consumed with concern about being judged by others. What a wonderful blessing this lesson delivered.

Any experiences you're willing to share?

Love you all,

It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, "Always do what you are afraid to do."Ralph Waldo Emerson

So, how often is it that we do what we are afraid to do. I don't!!! Even when I can look back and find specific times in my life when circumstances pushed me to do something fearful and I overcame it and was so grateful at the outcome, still I allow the presents of "fear" to deter me from forging forward. The most difficult things in my past brought me some of the most treasured blessings whether they be opportunity, traits like strength or confidence, whatever. How is it that we can keep the blessed outcome in our present mind to aid us in forging forward and DOING those things that spur the fear?

Any ideas?

Love you all Jacky
