Another weekend thought....



There's no praise and no blame on the path you've chosen. Praise and blame are forms of manipulation that you no longer require.

I opened this page, saw this and wept spontaneously.

I love those words and I know that I needed to hear them today.

Thank you.

What a beautiful blog. I have seen you in the comments elsewhere, thanks for coming by my blog.

I shall return to this lovely spot.

Peace to you, peace to all.

Ohhh! I need to write this on my forehead (backwards), so every time I look in the mirror I'll be reminded.
Excellent words to live by!

Is it tacky to just say "ditto" to franiam? EVERY word of it. Thank you.

That is brilliant. Something to think about this weekend.

That is perfect, and Millman is one of my great favorites.

Thanks to your reminder, and reminders are always timely, I'm going to reread his Peaceful Warrior books.
