There are few things in life that are as challenging
or as rewarding
as moving from what disheartens us
to what heartens us.
may we walk or strut or glide in color while the rain & the snow slide its gray walls all around us…..sip in gentle pleasures and shine within……
I must learn to love the fool in me–the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of my human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my Fool…… Theodore I. Rubin
I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits……Anaïs Nin
