This + That (A Day Early): Random Thoughts + Ideas (And A Photo Of TCBITW)


We are allowed to have preferences, to love what we love…to say “yes” or “no” without fear or guilt. It’s up to us to know what our preferences and loves are…and to honor them.


Forgiveness means not making what someone else said or did mean something about us. Because why was it painful to begin with? Let’s forgive ourselves for having made it painful.


The paradox of control: being comfy with a lack of control increases our ability to be more flexible and creative, which, in turn, empowers us (which is a lot more enjoyable than “control”).


I can relate to this:

I have just been letting things happen (and mistaking that for some sort of spiritual woo fate crap) rather than taking the helm and guiding myself into my own chosen destiny. So I had a taste last night of things to come as my life evolves toward what I really want it to be versus what it just happens to be. ~ Christine Claire Reed, in her blog post, “Is Your Meaning System Working for You? And What the Heck Am I Talking About!?”


If there was ever a weekly e-newsletter that always delights, Crys Williams’ Pinch is it.


“It is not your job to police the world. It is not your job to show others what they did wrong or to take their actions personally. It is not your job to wield your life like a sword, using it to prove to others that they’ve injured you.

It is your job to thrive. It is your job to create the life that is burgeoning in your heart. It is your job to hide the Facebook posts [or anything else] that make you crazy and say no to the things that don’t fill you up. It is your job to be the tender steward of your life, curating the things around you with nothing but love in your heart.” ~ Mara Glatzel
