“A meaningful life…

…is NOT about being rich, educated, or perfect. It’s about being real, humble, strong, and able to share ourselves [by] touching the lives of others. It is only then that we [can] have a full, happy, and contented life.” ( ~ Mar Razalon )

Book Recommendation…

One True Loves* by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Preface: “True love happens only once in a lifetime. Or does it? What if true love strikes twice, and you are caught in the middle of it?”

Yeah, it’s a “chick flick” complete with a surprising twist before you’re even halfway through the book! I haven’t finished reading it yet but am expecting further surprises. However, with what I’ve read thus far, Reid wrote two sentences that have prompted me to recommend this book before I’ve even finished reading it. The first: “Travel the World by Reading a Book.” (Love it! My favorite because I’m an avid reader so feel as though I’ve traveled the world thousands of times already; and, I look forward to growing that number as long as I’m able to do so!)…and the second: “If you want something passionately, you owe it to yourself to make it happen.” (This thought parallels my belief to “Do it now”…don’t keep telling yourself that you’ll do it tomorrow, or next month, next year, or sometime, because sometime may never come.)

If you get a chance to read this book, please share your opinion/thoughts with me.

*One, singular vs. Loves, plural…I was curious about the tense of these words but once I started reading the book, it became crystal clear that Reid chose THE perfect title.

Lakota Prayer…

“Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear, and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.” Amen.

To lighten your day…

“10 PARAPROSDOKIANS TO TICKLE YOUR BRAIN: (1) Where there is a will, I want to be in it. (2) The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it’s still on my list. (3) Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright…until you hear them speak. (4) If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong. (5) We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public. (6) War does not determine who is right…only who is left. (7) Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. (8) To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research. (9) I didn’t say it was your fault. I said I was blaming you. (10) In filling out an application, where it says ‘In case of emergency, notify…’ I put ‘Doctor.'” ( ~ grammarly )

( ~ Spirit Food For Thought )

“GRACE is when God gives us things that we don’t deserve. MERCY is when He spares us from bad things we deserve. BLESSINGS are when He is generous with both. Truly, we can never run out of reasons to thank Him.”

( ~ John Lennon )…my favorite of the group…

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

“If you asked me how long I’ll be your friend, my answer would be ‘I don’t know’ because I really don’t know which one is longer…Forever or Always.”

Native American Prayers

“O Great Spirit whose voice I hear in the winds, I come to you as one of your many children. I need your strength and your wisdom. Make me strong, not to be superior to my brother, but to be able to fight my greatest enemy: Myself.” ( ~ Unknown ) [Amen]

“When the blood in your veins returns to the sea, and the earth in your bones returns to the ground, perhaps then you will remember that this land does NOT belong to you…it is YOU who belong to this land.” ( ~ http://www.illuzone.net ) [Amen]

50 Million Native Americans were slaughtered to ‘Make America Great.'”
