Be Your Best Anyway

i’ve been facing a moral dilemma this week and standing up for what i believe in has been hard. and i feel like a super-nerd for even writing this, but stumbling on quotes on pinterst is sometimes all i need to remind myself of whatever i need to be focusing on.  yeah, i’m pretty much a 14 year old girl trapped in a body more than twice that age.  i have certainly felt very emo lately, it’s kind of embarrassing.

also, i’m agnostic so for me the god that mother teresa is referring to i interpret to mean the universe. or myself.  and i entertain the possibility that they are one and the same.  wherever my beliefs lie at any given time i think there are beautiful things to be taken from all religions. and that is the most i’ll probably ever say about my religious/spiritual views on this here blog.  tomorrow back to food, style, decor and dogs. *shaking it off*

    Sometimes life is so hard. You don't have to shake it off girl, lean into it. A quote from Pema Chodron that really resonated with me this week … maybe it will with you too?
    Feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we're holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we'd rather collapse and back away. They're like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we're stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it's with us wherever we are.

    Both of those quotes are great! Good luck in solving your moral dilemma. Personally I think its best to listen to your inner voice because that one never goes away.

    this has often been attributed to mother teresa. it is actually written by Kent Keith, who wrote a book about the paradoxical commandments. He was our high school class president at Roosevelt high school in Honolulu, HI. I hope that you can give him the credit for it. thank you!! And great blessings!!

    ps if you were to listen to some Esther Hicks/Abraham, you may get some value from it. put what you want into your vortex and focus on what you want. Remember your worth and be new in the moment! Great love to you.
