Insight from the Dalai Lama, 5/22

this is a few days late, but i really liked it.

it's from one of those page-a-day calendars, and sometimes i go a few days between tearing off the sheets, so i just found this one this morning.

"Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it."

i'm taking this weekend to especially remember the native peoples who died so that i can call myself an "American".

bless all our ways, all our days.

talk about a GOOD READ

enjoy this! i actually found it easier to read on paper, so i formatted it for Word. just sayin'.

AND, a lot of readers at found this same author's book to be trite New Age gibberish, so you have been warned. i personally really enjoyed the article and wanted to pass it on.

Happy Mother's Day

Mother’s Day provides a perfect opportunity to appreciate the women in my life. Have you ever noticed that women take care of others before they care for themselves? I am sure that this has something to do with biological functions, probably ingrained into our caring behaviors as children, but you need not have had a child to be a caring and loving woman and thus “mother others!”

Therefore, I wanted to express my appreciation for you in my life. Thank you for being you!

So often I meet women who say, 'I am just a homemaker.' Wow, that is a full time job in itself. Then I meet women who work one or two full time jobs, one being a homemaker, as well. It amazes me to see so many women who raise a family, cook, clean, and provide a shoulder to lean on . . . you are all SUPERWOMEN!!

So I want to remind you to love how special you are to those around you. You are fantastic that you are balancing and juggling so many things at the same time. You are powerful and strong, you can become whatever you want, and you can say it with conviction! Thank you for being you!
