i followed my impulse to head to the ocean yesterday. we arrived at the end of a downpour, left in sunshine, and had most of the beach to ourselves. it was a glorious sandy wet adventure. i feel refreshed and renewed - it had been much too long.
as i drove, i listened to energy anatomy by caroline myss. i made it through the first three chakras and my mind is seriously blown. there is so much to think about. eventually i suspect at least some of my thoughts might make it from my brain to my blog.
speaking of things to think about, here are a few things that are rolling around in my mind.
thought-provoking questions to ask yourself, from poet david whyte.
"What could you do now for yourself or others that your future self would look back on and congratulate you for—something it could view with real thankfulness because the decision you made opened up the life for which it is now eternally grateful?"
redefining what it means to be bad, from justine musk.
"Instead of recognizing a woman as a complex and multi-dimensional being, instead of allowing her the flaws, mistakes and happy accidents that come with the trial-and-error process known as the human condition, we stomp her into a cartoon. We accept an artificial conflict (good girl vs bad girl) and make it important."
will you walk with me, from jennifer louden.
"How do we live within the means of our planet? ... Because community is the only way I see for us to create a better story."
