What I Trust

Some fights need fighting regardless of the expected outcome.

Being kind matters more than being right.

Being kind does not mean being a doormat and sometimes for good to be done, justice is required.

It's my privilege and responsibility to keep my space sacred.

The formula to peace is simple: Pure intention + solid integrity + transparency - fear = Peace.

Integrity is doing the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing, without attachment to the outcome.

Dogs have perfected unconditional love.

Truth emerges no matter what, so it's such a time-saver to lead with it...and if you doubt truth is what you're getting, just be patient.

The glass house saying is so very true and wise.

An extra moment to be mind~full is a wise investment of time.

Bible stories have stuck around this long because the lessons are ones we crave.

There are movies and songs that have taught me more than some of my Master's level college courses ever I keep watching and listening.

Being me is enough. If if it seems like it isn't, it still is. In hindsight, I've been at my best at times when I thought I was totally broken, messy and unworthy.

Sometimes the best cure is any of these: a solid chunk of sleep, a walk in nature, bare feet in the grass, flip flop tan lines, hot tea, fuzzy socks, a baby's laugh, a picnic or serving someone else.

When in doubt, waiting is fine. If someone or something can't wait when you feel the need to then waiting is even more surely the right thing to do.

We are defined by our choices, in what we feel and how we think and what we consume therefore our choices should be thought~full.

Be pure in your intentions.

Be solid in your integrity.

Be completely transparent.

Don't let fear guide a single decision.

This is my recipe for twenty~twelve.

No more. No less.

Gotye said it best...

it wasn't because you became unattractive.
it wasn't because you were mean when it wasn't necessary.
it wasn't because you didn't pay enough attention.
it wasn't because we never really had a song.
it wasn't because of her or her or her or her.
it wasn't because of the way you drove or took too big of bites.
it wasn't because all of your friends were jackasses.
it wasn't because you were an ass when you drank.
it wasn't because you were alternately standoffish and needy.
it wasn't your mommy or daddy or baby momma issues.
it wasn't where you lived or what you did for a living.

it was how I felt about me for having someone like you in my life.
it was how I disappeared so that you could grow larger than life.
it was how celebratory I felt when your influence was gone.

and today it was how peaceful it felt to answer "just somebody that I used to know."
