Calmness


I tried tai chi this morning for the first time, and it helped me start the day much calmer than usual. Still feeling grounded and peaceful just an hour or two later, coincidentally someone shared this quote with me. It's too long to tweet so thought I would post it here.

"Calmness is a huge gift. And once you master it, you will be able to respond in a useful way to every difficult situation that decides to walk into your heart." ~Geri Larkin

Some thoughts are life-altering


"Why be saddled with this thing called life expectancy? Of what relevance to an individual is such a statistic? Am I to concern myself with an allotment of days I never had and was never promised? Must I check off each day of my life as if I am subtracting from this imaginary hoard? No, on the contrary, I will add each day of my life to my treasure of days lived. And with each day, my treasure will grow, not diminish." ~Robert Brault

Happy new year, one and all!
