Do you believe what you believe or hope you believe what you believe?

October 25, 2011

Do we at times hold tightly, dig in to what we believe/know, unwilling to hear, entertain, or acknowledge others’ views because we 1) are afraid that we’ll be genuinely proven wrong? 2) may find that we believe/know something different, accept something different which could lead to that “scary” thing called change?

Life shatters you…it’s a good thing…you’re lucky to have it do so…

What? Sounds rough, doesn’t it…or does it? Marinate on this for a moment, “Life does not accommodate you, it shatters you. It is meant to, and it couldn’t do it better.

Eat, Pray, Wha?? “Love” as an escape from self-love…

August 25, 2010

No, I have not read the book, Eat, Pray, Love…but, I did see the movie.  (No worries, I won’t post any spoilers for those of you haven’t seen it and plan to at some point.) I was amazed at all the backlash I heard at the thought of a “privileged” woman being so “selfish”, “self-absorbed”, […]
