Today's Lessons...

"For when the Universe speaks, its voice can come from the most unexpected places."

That, and ...

"Take a deep breath before (re)acting... and don't get stuck in your own preconceived notions"

A wise woman told me on Sunday afternoon that being reactive is like cutting your own bangs and realizing that one side is higher than the other. So you start cutting to even things out, and you cut some more, and then some more.... Well, you get the drift.. Being reactive just never ends well..

Wise words indeed, but often hard to follow!

Oh yes, especially when "afflicted" with an intense (LOL) personality.

There is such a fine line between passion and zealotry. I passionately believe that the way the boys and I are doing things is right for us. But our chosen path is not everybody's path, it is a path that when chosen will not work for everybody.

And I constantly need to remind myself that that is OK. "To each their own", as they say. To loose sight of that would be crossing over from passion into zealotry.

That won't stop me though from sharing our journey. If people want to ask questions, they most certainly can. If they don't, then that is OK too.

What it all comes down to is respect and faith, I think. A respect for the choices that other people make (another hard one sometimes), and faith that everybody is doing the very best they can...

I like the bangs analogy. Cool.
