As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

A message from the masters...

Psychologists say 68% of people miss out on opportunity simply because they are not awake to it.

Did you read that clearly? They are not awake.

Most people are in a coma of routine, habit, and schedule. They almost have to be. We over stimulate our calendar with so many tasks and errands that it becomes necessary to be in a robotic state of “doing” to ensure everything on the to-do list will get accomplished. And now, the harassed style of thinking and living has become a habit – a way of life.

You can break through this negative behavior of living by making a conscious effort to become more childlike – not childish – but, childlike. Find amazement with things again!
With a little giggle and an eye open for the awe in the world ~j

Just keeping it real on the 'to do's'. Someone should be working on that space-time continuum thingy and we'll all be grateful!

However, the things that we love to do, well, they don't always count on the list, right??

This is my little love in the pic. She's my youngest. Thanks for the wishes.
