monday moment of zen


"life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced."
~ kierkegaard


too many of us (myself including) are doers. sometimes doers can also be problem solvers. we see a situation or a problem and we can't help but try to fix it. but you know as well as i do that problems have a way of working themselves out on their own. so this week make an attempt to observe these problems without taking an initiative to "fix" them. like kierkegaard said, just experience this so-called problem and see how it works itself out. namaste

Oh boy, am I a doer. Always trying to fix something. It is a great challenge to just let things be.

i've jotted this quote down and it will become my mantra.

i tend to over-worry about things. i'll remember this for when i feel the weight of a burden on my shoulders.

ps. SO HONORED you used a quote from the book i sent...

:)

i'm glad you were my autumn swap match! xoxo

This is a great quote, especially for Monday. It feels like I am trying to catch up from the weekend and get going for the week. Maybe I should slow down and experience life a little more. Thank you for sharing. xo, kaileenelise

What a timely quote! I too am a doer, but I've noticed that as I age, I'm a little less tightly wound when it comes to problems.
