Be There

The cat is always a good reminder.

Wherever you are, be there totally.

 — Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now


Humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die. … If the structures of the human mind remain unchanged, we will always end up re-creating the same world, the same evils, the same dysfunction. — Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth.

“Rocky Speech: It is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward”

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!


All We Have to Do…

Woke up yesterday to a beautiful text of support and reassurance from my dad that he sent to me and my sisters. My sister Sara summed it up here, quoting Frodo and Gandalf. Because my dad is Gandalf in disguise. ❤ 

Frodo: “I wish ___  had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.”

Gandalf: “So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to us.”
