For the last couple of years...you know I have been dealing with my past demons. I bought this book called "The Bounce Back Book". I keep it in the bathroom...as that seems to be the place as a Mom that I can sometimes have peace...only when I lock the door. So, I read this poem a lot.
I like it because it tells me to appreciate everything...the good and the bad because they both can bring about something new and wonderful...or a new way to look at things. Anyway...if you ever need a new perspective...read this.
Guest House by Rumi
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
Some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
Who violently sweep your house
Empty of its furniture,
Still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
For some new delight.
