Since it is Mother’s Day here in North America I thought it would be fitting to share a little advice my Mother instilled in me as a young child. This quote from her are words I try to live by. Whenever I got in trouble or did something inappropriate or disobeyed at school my Mother would punish me but she would always say to me as I was denying any involvement in whatever situation I was getting shit for “Lindsay, you have to accept responsibility and move on.” I don’t know why but these words stuck with me and whenever I think of my Mother these are the first words that pop into my head. I have also included a poem below that is about a Mother and Daughter relationship in a story I wrote, it seems fitting for the day! Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers in the blog world and the real world, thanks for all the love and support!

You are the vine, roping me tight

holding my limbs when I put up a fight.

You are the tree, grounding my soul

From the first day my heart you stole.

You are the tear, falling from my eye

when I have no answer for my why.

You are the moon, lighting my darkness

showing me peace in all its starkness.

You are the sun, warming my heart

letting me know we will never part.

You are the song, ringing in my ear

calming my sadness, tabling my fear.

You are the wind, washing over me

keeping my spirit open and letting me be free.

Fear is Useless

“Fear turns strength to weakness.” Wallace D. Wattles

 

“Anything can happen…and…anything does.”

This quote and entire movie blew my mind! It is a tragic and inspiring story weaved together by great performances and amazing writing. The Poker House written and directed by Lori Petty (who also happens to act in one of my favourite movies EVER A League of Their Own) and based on her experiences growing up in a poor rural town in IowaJennifer Lawrence provides a stunning performance as Agnes (her acting is amazing in everything she does also see Winter’s Bone). This quote just hit me in the chest, it’s so simple but yet so true in a world where honesty is often avoided.

And that’s the Truth

Say what you want about her but the girl can sing and write. One of my favourite songs…probably because it’s so honest, it speaks to me 🙂

“I don’t know this could break my heart or save me
Nothing’s real until you let go completely
So here I go with all my thoughts I’ve been saving
So here I go with all my fears weighing on me.”

Sober Music and Lyrics By Kelly Clarkson

“I have seen enough to know I’ve seen too much” A League of Their Own

“I have learned that it is not important to find the answers in life, but much more important to pose the questions that may have no answer.” L.D

I think it was Einstein who said “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.”

This is how I try to live my life, not to find the answer to the question but simply to ask it.
