Things that make you go Hmmm?

Do you have thoughts that arrive seemingly out of nowhere?  Do they sometimes stick around like ear worms?  Do you process information while you’re listening to music or going for a walk?  It’s like that song from the 90’s, Things That Make You Go Hmmm (and mmm hmm, and oh hmmm some more).  This happens to me quite a lot.

Today I’d like to share some of those ear worm thoughts with you for your processing pleasure.  No philosophizing, no analysis, no connections, no suggestions, just an info drop.  Ready?  Go …

“Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.”

Mother Teresa

“Don’t over think this.   Which thing will bring you closer to your end goal?  Do that.  Then if that doesn’t work, at least you can say you tried.  Then try something else.”

Merril Mitchell

“Let go of your mind and then be mindful.  Close your ears and listen!”

Rumi, Love’s Ripening: Rumi on the Heart’s Journey

“Nous nous ressemblons et l’on dit que nous sommes fleurs tous deux.  Mais hélas! L’air t’emporte et la terre m’enchaîne.  Sort cruel!”   Translates as: “They say we look alike, that we are both flowers.  But alas, the air carries you off and the earth enchains me.  Cruel fate!”

Victor Hugo and Gabriel Faure, Le papillon et la fleur

“Open the window.  Sweep out the cobwebs.  Open your mind to what is going on all around.”

Miss Stacey, Anne of Green Gables

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated”



I wish you peaceful processing of your thoughts, feelings and emotions this week.
