Beautiful Quote on Service

"I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service.
I acted and behold, service was joy."
- Rabindranath Tagore

Deep Breaths

I just recently discovered that if I make my breath long and full like ocean waves while I'm putting Haley to bed, she falls asleep fast, I get relaxed and the night is more peaceful.  Just thought I'd share.

Breath is an amazing tool, for coming into the moment, slowing down, and calming down, and it's hard to talk about breath without breathing more consciously and deeply.

An itty bitty goal

My little goal for today:
replace 5 minutes of computer madness with 5 minutes of meditation. 
Was it life changing? not really- but it sure did feel satisfying.

I think achieving goals uses spiritual muscles that for me are some what weak at the moment. 
So starting itty bitty is important and soon maybe I'll be able to go for days without plugging in
(thought I guess if I'm going to get serious about blogging that might not work)

Home Made Popsicles

In my opinion, the best way to get a picky toddler to eat her fruit is turn it into a popsicle.

Haley will eat anything in popsicle form ( except carrot juice)  I have even taken those
Odwalla smoothies and put them in a popsicle mold- green drinks, veggie/fruit mixes,
we love popsicles.

Our popsicle combo of the week: blueberry, banana, soy milk.  


"The Trajedy in Life
doesn't lie in not
reaching your goal. 
The tragedy lies in
having no goal to reach."
