The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.

knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

are neither your mind nor your body.

That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
