Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.
-Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium,

Each of us experiences life in our own context,
but for all of us there is a struggle
to balance the reality of life
with our needs and our dreams.
Perhaps the most difficult thing of all
is to value our life and who we are,
and to direct our life in a manner that honors it…”
-Lauri Harper, submitted by Maggie J., Newberg OR
Each day we have many choices to make how we respond to the people and events we encounter. If we are not careful and if we are not conscious, we end up reacting to them without pausing to consider the best possible course of action. Our quotes this week invite us to “direct our life in a manner that honors it” and I dare you to allow some extra breaths and even some quiet time before making decisions about how you respond.
Your best self can emerge and help you identify new possibilities for you and for others. It can be challenging AND I believe you can “rise to it!”
