See this world as a free world, and see everyone in it as trying—through their individual experiences—to find their way back to that calling, back to that goodness, back to themselves. And even though there are billions of them going about it in a way that is different than you would choose, there’s no right or wrong way. In other words, bless them all, love them all, wish them all well, and get on with the only thing you have any power about, which is your own self and restoring yourself to your natural state of Well-Being.

People. People important to you, people unimportant to you cross your life, touch it with love or carelessness and move on. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of relief and wonder why you ever came into contact with them. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of remorse and wonder why they had to go away and leave such a gaping hole. Children leave parents, parent leave friends. Acquaintances move on. Friends love and move on. You think of the many who have moved into your hazy memory. You look on those present and wonder. I believe this is all part of a master plan. People move in and out of our lives, and each leaves his mark on the other. You find you are made up of bits and pieces of all who ever touched your life, and you are more because of it, and you would be less if they had not touched you. So far this is who I know that I am... PS I am a Spanish teacher (lucky enough to teach grade K-8!) living in the Chicago area. I am a yoga alliance registered and certified yoga instructor. I am pursuing MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) certification and simply happy to be alive to write this and share with others. View all posts by bemindfulchange
