Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Challenge

I don't do resolutions, so here's a challenge:  for the next thirty days, go stand in front of a mirror twice a day.  Look yourself in the eye and sy "I accept myself unconditionally right now."

I'll let you know how it goes.  You do the same for me, m'kay?

BELIEVE it twice a day is the real changer

When I've done this, I've used a phrase similar to this one, which was the affirmation on Louise Hay's site just yesterday:

Every day it gets easier to look into my own eyes on the mirror and say, "I love you just the way you are."

And I've said it in the mirror, in my head, out loud, hundreds of times a day, letting it push out every other stray, unpleasant, unnecessary thought. It works... And I believe I will take the challenge with you to do some housecleaning of my own inner monologue!
