I Celebrate Myself…

My ‘To Do’ List

Leave a comment

It’s 6:05 in the morning, who knows what time it will be when I actually finish this post. I realized that I haven’t posted in a while. I go through my spurts of growth in writing, as I do in life, I suppose. I was reading a fascinating blog that my friend told me about. He thought that I would love it because of the way she lives her life. I agree with him wholeheartedly! I love her morning runs and yoga poses, the pictures that she takes of “Bean,” her son and DH, her husband. I especially like the way in which she writes about the simple things in life and just through her words she shows how important and meaningful they really are– like making pancakes, making easter eggs, washing a glass at the kitchen sink. She’s a writer as well and she began her blog specifically to improve her writing, like I did. So, I guess I have a soul blogger…;)

In one of the posts she wrote a list about what she wants to accomplish in her life. I too have a list like this and so I will like to share, because, I am just in a sharing type of a mood this morning:

Love this picture. When I was a child I would make wishes after catching some it\'s fragments. Sometimes if I see a piece floating in the air I try to catch it and make a wish (without looking too silly now, I\'m an adult)

I Have Learned So much from God That I can no longer Call Myself A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, A Buddhist, a Jew. The Truth has shared so much of Itself With me That I can no longer call myself A man, a woman, an angel, Or even pure Soul. Love has Befriended Hafiz so completely It has turned to ash And freed Me Of every concept and image My mind has ever known. ~ Hafiz ~
