Life is both glorious and wretched xo

“Life is glorious, but life is also wretched. It is both. 

Appreciating the gloriousness inspires us, encourages us, cheers us up, gives us a bigger perspective, energizes us. We feel connected. 

But if that's all that's happening, we get arrogant and start to look down on others, and there is a sense of making ourselves a big deal and being really serious about it, wanting it to be like that forever. 
The gloriousness becomes tinged by craving and addiction. On the other hand, wretchedness--life's painful aspect--softens us up considerably. 

Knowing pain is a very important ingredient of being there for another person. When you are feeling a lot of grief, you can look right into somebody's eyes because you feel you haven't got anything to lose--you're just there. 

The wretchedness humbles us and softens us, but if we were only wretched, we would all just go down the tubes. We'd be so depressed, discouraged, and hopeless that we wouldn't have enough energy to eat an apple. 

Gloriousness and wretchedness need each other. One inspires us, the other softens us. They go together.”

Act Accordingly

My heart skipped a beat when I first saw this. 

Because we all have these grand lists right? Ideas of how we want to live... what we want to achieve... but when it comes down to it, it's our day to day actions - the living RIGHT NOW - that creates our lives, and our futures. 

I'm going to be brave and write my lists. And compare them. Will you join me?

Acupuncture - Wonderful Little Needles

Next week I start my leap of faith. I have quit a 15+ year career in PR, and am going to be a full time student again. And I couldn't be more excited. And I also couldn't be more overwhelmed and terrified ha!

But even more.. excited. 

I cannot wait.

I commence a degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Wish me luck! xo

Not sure what Acupuncture is all about? Watch this - a TED talk about wonderful little needles. x
