Embrace progress OVER perfection, embrace the promise of renewal each morning, and for today, don't try to be perfect, just be 1% better than you were yesterday. Each step counts so take yours today!

Where do you come from, where do you go
Is there a reason that keeps you in flow
Walking on water lighter than air
Into the ocean now you are there
Peace of mind is all around
Rising up when the sun goes down
Into the ocean of your bliss
Into the light where your home is

Some beautiful words to bring a little serenity into your day :-)

A Refresher

A week of sorts has passed, with ups and downs and all different kinds of in betweens. Sometimes I really do feel like a baby deer in this world learning to see it for what it really is, standing up for the first time on my wobbly legs. I'm learning how to walk the path, the enlightened one, the one that gives more than it takes. Sometimes I trip and face the challenge of getting back up with excitement. I bounce back into step as if nothing happened, ready to take on whatever comes my way. Other times I fall and forget to look at how far I've come. I become overwhelmed at the prospect of getting up and trying again just knowing that I will fall somewhere further down the road. This is when hope steps in. It lifts me and pushes me forward even when I don't want to keep on going. Hope for a more positive state of mind, one that is more calm and peaceful and hope that the strength will come back to me. That hope is undying, that hope can never be stopped, the faith that this too shall pass for a brighter tomorrow.

On Feeling

Feelings are where the true you exists, not thoughts. So today feel more and think less.

Sorry for the short post, didn't feel like overthinking it and wrote straight from the heart ;-)

Feeling Trapped?

Tomorrow is my first physics exam of this semester, phew. To be honest I am a little nervous since this class involves so many special cases and also an understanding of certain previous calculus and physics concepts. But the good thing is that I have been preparing and generally trying my best to get the best footing so that makes me feel much better than going into this by procrastinating and trying to cram. But to help clear my mind, literally since lately its been feeling a little trapped is a section from of yesterday's tiny buddha blog that I enjoyed:

"We are always going to think and feel. There is no escape from the mind. Whether or not it’s a prison is entirely up to us."

Stressful Sunday

Actually to expand on the title of this post, its not just today thats been like this, rather this whole week has been a little hectic. Third week of school down and now the excitement has begun to wear off and time has been getting a little cramped. Tests, quizzes, busy shifts at the sub shop, and tutoring have left me with little time elsewhere. Friends, family, and training for the half-marathon eat up any extra time but have also kept me sane and pushing on through. What I've learned is that whenever I become overwhelmed and all that must be done starts getting to me I take a step back and turn my fear at what I face into excitement of all thats going on. Remembering what is truly important like being present and in each moment as I go through the hurdles right now and being kind every step along the way helps give me the space in what I've chosen. Hope that whatever you face you remember to remind yourself why you do it, follow your passions even when they get tough.

Smiling Moon

Perhaps the crescent moon smiles in doubt at being told that it is a fragment awaiting perfection

Love this quote!! We are like the crescented moon waiting to reach perfection as the full moon not realizing that we already are perfect and complete. I also liked this analogy because of how the moon goes through stages, never the same two nights in a row but permanently the same moon.

One Month In

Each day I look at my failures, my mistakes, my difficulties and I feel regression. However, in the sum of things, there is progress. It is ...
