Happy happy new year to you and yours! And a devastatingly sad new year to us all too - because isn't that the human condition, whether we like it or not? Someone sent me this Pema Chödrön quote, which I'm hoping will inspire you as much as it did me:"As long as we're caught up in always looking for certainty and happiness, rather than honoring the taste and smell and quality of exactly what is happening, as long as we're always running from discomfort, we're going to be caught in a cycle of unhappiness and discomfort, and we will feel weaker and weaker. This way of seeing helps us develop inner strength. And what's especially encouraging is the view that inner strength is available to us at just the moment when we think that we've hit the bottom, when things are at their worst."xx
what a fantastic quote. happy new year!
Happy new year to you too! I remember you mentioning on my blog that you'll be going back to study this year, I wish you all the very best. I can't wait to hear how it goes for you. Here's to an amazing 2012!
