Saturday thoughts

Try again.  Fail again.  Fail better.  ~Samuel Beckett

It's not what you say, it's how you say it.

"it's easy enough to be pleasant when life flows along like a song, but the man worth while is the one who can smile when everything goes dead wrong."

When life feels really difficult, it's usually a big red flag that we can learn something about ourselves.

I haven't bitten my nails in ten days

Today we got a new carseat for bayley and went to the olive garden
My mom made roast beef and mashed potatoes
I loved laying in bed and eating a noodle bowl while watching perfect couples with Adam.
Bayley is using the word actually a lot these days. "actually my mouth is big."

"don't worry so much, it's just life.". (a psychic witch from Venice beach)

I can't wait for Easter this year

I'm reading Natalie Goldburg's "writing down the bones"
And I love it

Some favorite quotes from it:

"our task is to say a holy yes to the real things of our life as they exist-the real truth of who we are..."

" takes tremendous effort to just follow the rules if your heart isn't in it."

"the best way to control people is to encourage them to be mischievous.". - Suzuki roshi

"but we should never underestimate people. They do desire the cut of truth."

"we don't live for ourselves, we are interconnected"
