Trying to Live Well

Understanding the way the mind works is to understand the reality that we make for ourselves.

Library science is my profession, but learning how to live well is the mission.  And I don’t mean monetarily well.  We can’t truly help others until we find the still point within that makes it all make sense.

At what point does a strong sense of Self become egotism rather than protection against Hamlet’s “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”?  Self-confidence with humility is a boon enjoyed by so few of us—-but what a joy when it visits even in fleeting moments.

A failure to view life positively is not benign. It creates momentum, and if one doesn’t watch it, negativity will snowball to become a veritable avalanche.
