A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

This is Life!

The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.

Climb the mountain, follow my path, listen to my drumbeat.

The struggles I face on my way up will look so small when I am standing on the summit and looking back at where I have been.

Today I want to share a poem Charlie Chaplin wrote for the occasion of his 70th birthday so we may meditate upon it:

When I started loving myself
I understood that I’m always and at any given opportunity
in the right place at the right time.
And I understood that all that happens is right –
from then on I could be calm.
Today I know: It’s called TRUST.

When I started to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody
When I tried to force my desires on this person,
even though I knew the time is not right and the person was not ready for it,
and even though this person was me.
Today I know: It’s called LETTING GO

When I started loving myself
I could recognize that emotional pain and grief
are just warnings for me to not live against my own truth.
Today I know: It’s called AUTHENTICALLY BEING.

When I started loving myself
I stopped longing for another life
and could see that everything around me was a request to grow.
Today I know: It’s called MATURITY.

When I started loving myself
I stopped depriving myself of my free time
and stopped sketching further magnificent projects for the future.
Today I only do what’s fun and joy for me,
what I love and what makes my heart laugh,
in my own way and in my tempo.
Today I know: it’s called HONESTY.

When I started loving myself
I escaped from all what wasn’t healthy for me,
from dishes, people, things, situations
and from everything pulling me down and away from myself.
In the beginning I called it the “healthy egoism”,
but today I know: it’s called SELF-LOVE.

When I started loving myself
I stopped wanting to be always right
thus I’ve been less wrong.
Today I’ve recognized: it’s called HUMBLENESS.

When I started loving myself
I refused to live further in the past
and worry about my future.
Now I live only at this moment where EVERYTHING takes place,
like this I live every day and I call it CONSCIOUSNESS.

When I started loving myself
I recognized, that my thinking
can make me miserable and sick.
When I requested for my heart forces,
my mind got an important partner.
Today I call this connection HEART WISDOM.

We do not need to fear further discussions,
conflicts and problems with ourselves and others
since even stars sometimes bang on each other
and create new worlds.
Today I know: THIS IS LIFE!

Luckily, I can start applying some of its utterly truth before my 70th anniversary by simply beginning to love the core of it, the Self.  What I love, I know…that love will bring the peace of integration that delivers the consensus within.   A woman needs just four things:  a black dress, a black sweater, a pair of black mittens, and, on her arm, a man she loves.

Casino Royale in black Premier Serenity Sock Yarn is another elegant lace design by Hungarian Eszter Sarkadi Nagy, aka wondrlanding.

The cuffs are the best part of the fun to knit up.  Very stylish and practical.  I would like a pair in every color of the color wheel for my wardrobe.  How about you?  What is/are your closet must-have(s)?

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

(still doesn’t do texting, MySpace, Twitter, StumbleUpon, DiggIt…but caved into Facebook!)
