Quote Of The Day – Anything Can Be

Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.

Quote of The Day – Education

It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought — that is to be educated.

Quote of The Day – Blossom

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

To Thine Own Self Be True

This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.

~ William Shakespeare

In the case of multiple personalities, one may be true to oneself and one’s other self and one’s other, other self still… without living a duplicitous life. It’s easier to recall many truths than to remember one lie. Live your truths, no matter how unsavory you believe them to be, for they are all yours.

I am Free

There are many ways to be free. One of them is to transcend reality by imagination, as I try to do.

~ Anais Nin

Transcending reality by dressing up; here as the super hero that I know myself to be, which is Wonder Woman–I am free. I cannot hear the voices that may say “Grow up Lenette,  you’re too old to play dress up!”–I am free. If I had listened to all of those negative voices growing up, I wouldn’t be here now–I am free. My imagination has afforded my the ability to survive through some very difficult times in my life–I am free. I know that I have many more difficult times ahead of me, they’re of no consequence–I am free.

Quote of the Day

We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.

Quote of The Day – Not a Tourist

I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy.

~ Anais Nin
