because sometimes we all just need a break

If you can’t solve it, it isn’t a problem- it’s Reality. And sometimes Reality is the hardest thing to understand, and the thing that takes the longest to realize.


Stumbled upon this quote, and thought, this is exactly what I’m facing with my family. These situations have gone beyond problem status that can be fixed, and into the realm of Reality. And I can’t shift Reality.

But here’s the thing: healing doesn’t have to be heavy. It doesn’t have to feel like a tiresome concept that we lug around on our backs; one that holds within it the burden of our pain and suffering. It doesn’t have to be cloaked in drama. Healing can mean whatever the hell you want it to mean; happiness, softness, awareness, forgiveness, letting go, returning to totality… Tara Bliss (via creatingaquietmind)

I am trying to see things in perspective.
My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter
chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot
have this, because chocolate makes dogs
very sick. My dog does not understand this.
She pouts and wraps herself around my leg
like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me
to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in,
she eventually gives up and lays in the corner,
under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the
universe has my best interest in mind like I have
my dogs. When I want something with my whole
being, and the universe withholds it from me,
I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl.
She thinks this is what she wants, but she
does not understand how it will hurt.

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.

The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.

If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign—body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on—alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.

It’s really easy to complain. If you’re not careful, then you end up complaining about your whole life. Concentrating on the good things is really good. Catch people doing good. Lisa Williams (via fawun)

The truth is, I pretend to be a cynic, but I am really a dreamer who is terrified of wanting something she may never get. Joanna Hoffman (via larmoyante)

Give yourself permission to break down, then try to see the real issue involved, factually, and try to accept that it’s an issue, without judgment, just as information.

Be willing to bear your feelings and to just accept the truth. Then see where you can take a step forward with it. Do what you need, but understand that this is inner work, and it will require some time and energy, so you have to figure that into your expectations of what you can accomplish today.

So, I believe that what you are looking for, really looking for, is that one person who is capable of recognizing you no matter what. You know, that one person who is going to be able to see past what everybody else sees and even past what you yourself see or want to show, then be able to look at you and really recognize you and say “That’s not you! This is you right over here! You just forgot yourself, but I see you! I will help you remember yourself, because I remember you!” And that’s what everyone wants. No, actually, I don’t know if that’s what everyone wants; but I know that’s what I want! Because I can put up so many damn walls and faces just to see who really knows me, who really recognizes me, who really remembers me, even more than I recognize and remember myself! Because if I don’t get that, then I don’t get anything, because I don’t want anything less than that.  C. JoyBell C. (via creatingaquietmind)
