One of my happy places right now is while I am at the yoga class I teach 2x a week. It's the only place where the people around me actually listen to me. Imagine everyone peacefully, willingly moving in sync following your cues. It's almost a magical experience for this (often) solo parenting mom to 2 kids and 3 dogs... all of whom NEVER listen to me. Like, ever. At the end of class, I always read a quote or poem. Typically it is something that speaks to me personally, like this one I read yesterday.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. ~ Helen Keller
I haven't been able to put my own feelings into coherant thoughts and, therefore, don't have a lot of my own words to share lately. Maybe it's partially because I'm tired of hearing myself speak at home and not be heard. ehem. It explains, to some degree, the cobwebs forming here at Mommycosm.
Here are a few more quotes that currently resonate with me as well.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. ~Thomas Jefferson
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. ~Unknown
I used to think that the worst thing in life is the end up all alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone. ~ Robin Williams
There's no such thing as being too busy, if you want something you will make time for it. - unknown
