Q #21

A reminder today that all the hard work, the fights and the tears and blood-shed are worth it. 


  1. Oh, I love Rumi (I actually named my dog after him, hahaha). My favorite is The Guest House:

    This being human is a guest house.
    Every morning a new arrival.

    A joy, a depression, a meanness,
    some momentary awareness comes
    as an unexpected visitor.

    Welcome and entertain them all!
    Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
    who violently sweep your house
    empty of its furniture,
    still, treat each guest honorably.
    He may be clearing you out
    for some new delight.

    The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
    meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

    Be grateful for whatever comes.
    because each has been sent
    as a guide from beyond.


  2. That's really an amazing one, too. I think there are just so many that make my heart skip because they 'speak' to me, it's such an unnerving sensation when someone writes down something that describes how you feel, so accurately..


I love getting comments and receiving them, and I will always reply to them, even if it takes me a little while, please be patient!
