Quote for the Day

Be patient towards all that is unsolved
in your heart.
Try to love the questions themselves.
Do not now seek the answers
which cannot be given
because you would not be able
to live them.
And the point is,
to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps you will then
gradually,
without noticing it,
live along some distant day
into the answers.

- Ranier Maria Rilke

This reminds me of the saying about how the joy is in the journey. So often we are so focused on our destination we get tunnel vision and forget to enjoy the path to the destination. All we can gain, learn, and enjoy along the way, we will have in our hearts when arrive at our final destination. Love you. Jerrine

Kind of like one of my clients' answering machines. It said, life is not about waiting for the storm to be over, but about learning to dance in the rain...Almost made me forget what message I was going to leave for her.

Love your questions - live them. :)
