Thoughts from an American turned Canadian in Montreal.
I think #1 is key. It took me forever to realize that [as in, until this year] and so I used to get so upset when life wasn't going well.
Wow, after the day I had yesterday, I really needed to read this! :)
Awesome. This is something I need to look at DAILY. Probably more than once a day, too.Love that you had your dog in the photo for this post!
Too much for my "morning" brain ;)
Thanks for this!
how timely! this post really spoke to me this morning. thank you, tornwordo. cheers!
Thanks. I needed that!
Awww, that's nice. Being a bit bithcy, though, I prefer:"May those that love us love us; and those that don't love us, may God turn their hearts; if He won't turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles, so we'll know them by their limping."
What a great pic. This is good to remember. I slightly disagree with 2 though because I think it can lead to disaster trying to control my feelings but they don't get to control me either.Uh, or at least they stop controlling me when I notice what is going on...
Well, I'd have to disagree with # 1... (Don't hit me)I'd have to say that most of us have it pretty damn easy actually... Real suffering is something that most of us have not experienced. Even when we might have a life crisis such as a death or sickness in our family or even ourselves... we still have it pretty easy, lots of people (outside of USA & Canada) have no one to turn too either economically or medically...Minorities suffer in ways that some of us cannot imagine even in our own countries...That said.. I agree with everything else...
The Zen Tornwordo...
How did you get so damned enlightened? Nice pic, you're too cute for words with the puppy!
There is a price to pay for everything we do in this world. So if your willing to pay that price do not let fear or common sense hold you back!
I appreiciated this post. Kind of timely.
Simple and clear. A beautiful (and absolutely correct) perspective.
