I'm pensive right now...

In times of sadness & heartache, we create an illusion...a fantasy where we cling onto things/people we're infatuated with. We think that by having them, we'll be happier - when actually, all they do is bring a new set of problems! So? Be present & have gratitude for what is now, as it exists.

Re-reading 'The Four Agreements'

We make assumptions about what others are doing or thinking, we take it personally, and then we blame them and react by sending emotional poison with our word. (The Four Agreements)

Re-reading "The Four Agreements

"If someone is not treating you with love & respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person doesn't walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or her. Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want." (The Four Agreements)

Highlight of my day

I'm absolutely loving teaching Elementary level!

Today, my highlight was when a student was trying to describe his black & white striped shirt.

"Colour yes, colour no, colour yes, colour no." :-)

My Midday Thought

It makes sense: When you're infatuated with someone, you put them on a pedestal. The higher the pedestal, the harder the crash is when they disappoint you & come tumbling down from where you placed them - way up there! Bottom line - keep an equilibrium :)
