Here’s A Thought

I am enough, right now, just as I am.  I don’t need to pretend.  I don’t need to be validated.  I don’t need to play a role.  I don’t need to do what’s expected.  I don’t need any frills.  I don’t need to prove anything.  My doubts and fears are natural, and they only have power if I give them power.  I am free to make choices based on what I want rather than what I fear.  All I have to do is what matters to me.

Here’s A Thought

“I would rather have a little rose

from the garden of a friend,

Than flowers strewn around my casket

When my days on earth must end.

I would rather have a living smile

From one I know is true,

Than tears around my casket,

When this world I bid adieu.

Bring me all the flowers today,

Whether pink or white or red.

I would rather have one blossom now,

Than a truckload when I’m dead.”

Here’s A Thought

“In the greatest confusion there is still an open channel to the soul. It may be difficult to find, because by midlife it is overgrown, and some of the wildest thickets that surround it grow out of what we describe as our education. But the channel is always there, and it is our business to keep it open, to have access to the deepest part of ourselves.”   Saul Bellow
