on wednesdays last spring i did a whole series inspired by the dalai lama’s 18 rules of living. as a result, i became a huge believer in his simple, yet profound, ways of being. his words always rang true with me. this morning i ran across this little quote below and i thought it was the perfect way to start my day – i think it sums up what i am feeling/what i have been feeling about my life for a few years now. do i actually accomplish these things? oh noooo. but, i can damn well try. and, try i will.
