1.It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.– Helen Keller –
With the extreme intolerance we’re witnessing in the world right now, it just seems like these may be words to live by. Killing each other in the name of a higher power seems ridiculously contrary to the one goal to which all profess… (ie fighting evil.) Wouldn’t it be better to learn some tolerance and respect for our differences in order to bore the bejeezus out of Beelzebub? It would certainly be a hell of a lot more fun.
I gotta say that I am not particularly fond of my android. Love some things about it… not so much others…. but I do so love their new ads…
2.A while back I had said I needed to set some new goals. Looking at my health in a new light and accepting where I’m at and may be heading with it, I needed to feel more comfortable in my spiritual life. I haven’t in a long time. I still don’t but I am trying to find my way back.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
3.Why does watching a dog be a dog fill one with happiness?
—Jonathan Safran Foer
5. My favorite funny dog quote ( yep I have one…)
Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.
6. This is my Godchild/niece Sarah, when she was four and I was 26. She just turned 30. Remember this little goofball? This is her daughter…. and Sarah (now!) Sarah came to my rescue and her grandmother’s rescue this week in a BIG FAT HAIRY WAY! THANK YOU SO MUCH, SARAH! My mom was really ill and I live about an hour and change away. Sarah lives about five minutes from my mom. One call and she had her in the ER and long story short, ended up staying the night with her and taking her home and staying with her there to make sure she was well… as I cannot at this point afford to become acutely ill due to some health issues. Sainthood in my book… she is totally up for Canonization.
Caregiving often calls us to lean into love we didn’t know possible.― Tia Walker, The Inspired Caregiver
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy tea and that’s kind of the same thing. Anon.
10. Having this posted over my desk probably doesn’t make me the most popular therapist… but people know where I stand… I don’t expect anyone to actually come up with any solutions, However I do outlaw the term “Yeah, but…” If you’re not willing to try to change the problem…. THAT is called whining. ( for the record… I like the quote but Teddy isn’t over my desk….for obvious reasons… I don’t want to antagonize people I just want to increase their awareness.)
