“Is it worse to stay where one does not belong at all than to wander about lost for a while and looking for the psychic and soulful kinship one requires”

This quote begs the question…

Would you rather be a lone wolf or part of a pack/tribe?

{If you think about it, we are both a lone wolf and a pack/tribe member}.

We are all individuals yet we belong to a pack/tribe- our family and our greater family- humanity}.

*To be honest, I am a lone wolf.

Peace & Namaste…

Reflection for today…Failure Is A Greater Teacher Than Success- Dr.Clarissa Pinkola Estes

19 Jul

“Though fairy tales end after ten pages, our lives do not.

We are multi-volume sets.

In our lives, even though one episode amounts to a crash and burn, there is always another episode awaiting us and then another.

There are always more opportunities to get it right, to fashion our lives in the ways we deserve to have them.

Don’t waste your time hating a failure.

Failure is a greater teacher than success.”

-Dr.Clarissa Pinkola Estés
