A Thought for the Week

  1. Great quotes! These are great for me today when I’m spending time thinking about how NOT to be a perfectionist. It’s okay to make mistakes and for things to be imperfect!

    Hi Hilda,
    I love the apple!
    That last quote is just so profound. What would I do if I weren’t afraid? Hilda, this one really has me thinking today. About what it is that holds me back….
    Thank you, so much – for this today. You don’t know how I needed to hear that. And to think about it…

    Hey Dani,
    I read your post from today – definitely some synchronicity going on there ;-) So glad you liked the quotes.
    when I saw that pic it made me laugh and I thought it was perfect – reminded me not to take myself or life too seriously. And I also think the last quote is really profound. I ask myself that question alot, whenever I’m procrastinating or struggling with a question. When I ask myself what I would do if I weren’t afraid – what decision would come from the energy of love rather than fear – the answer is often revealed in the very question.
    Happy thinking ;-)
