now

mother's day lunch, 2006. "If you then become excessively focused on the goal, perhaps because you are seeking happiness, fulfillment, or a more complete sense of self in it, the NOW is no longer honoured. It becomes reduced to a mere stepping stone to the futrue, with no intrinsic value. Your life's journey is no longer an adventure, just an obsessive need to arrive, to attain, to 'make it'." --Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now

love the movement of his hand...it's so hard to catch them still. happiness.

and thanks for the quote...i've been struggling with goals and feeling the pressure to get a job massaging and use my education. trying to stay focused in the moment and enjoy the kiddies while i have the luxury of being home with them.
