Rainy Day Musings

Freedom is learning to dance in your chains. That phrase has been recurring in my life quite a bit this past week. I look at my self- and other-imposed shackles and I begin to sway….

Sarcastic, condescending, judgmental remarks telling others how they should live or think or feel do NOT make you sound intelligent nor wise. They merely serve to show up the failings in your own character.

On surviving loss in any world:
Shared moments in time
Are now memories of joy.
Grief yields to smiles.

It’s hard to be a parent:
I long to guard you
Keep you safe from harm and pain.
Shelter in my love.

This is my all-time favorite and the hardest for me to remember/live. Thanks to Calli for this one – she has it in her profile picks.
Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Oh, PLEASE let the weather report have it right for tomorrow: sunny, warm, gardening weather. I long to play in the garden and smell the flowers.
