Natural Highs ---Part 2

The surest hindrance of success is to have too high a standard of refinement in our own minds, or too high an opinion of the judgment of the public. He who is determined not to be satisfied with anything short of perfection will never do anything..” - anon

Trust each other again and again. When the trust level gets high enough, people transcend apparent limits, discovering new and awesome abilities for which they were previously unaware.” anon

Each of us has a spark of life inside us, and our highest endeavor ought to be to set off that spark in one another.” - Kenny Ausubel





Surfing. Walking on the beach. Decorating a Christmas tree. Playing the piano. Sailing. Fixing something that's been broken. Writing something exactly the way it has to be written to say what it has to say. A job well done. Creativity. Football. Slumber parties. Meditation. Liking your parents. Liking your children. The quiet after a snowfall. Riding down the street in a sports car swiching gears. Friends. Singing. Cooking somebody their favorite meal. Really observing things. A letter from a friend. Colour.



Frisbee. Being appreciated. Needlework. Losing weight. Being noticed by someone you've been noticing. A warm smile from a stranger. Success stories. The Pachelbel Canon. Dancing, Finishing a term paper. The first week of school. The last week of school. The day the yearbook comes out. Laughter. Recognizing the truth in something you read. Hearing somebody say "I love you." Holding hands. Clean hair. Stopping smoking. The first spring flower. Loving yourself. Breakfast in bed.





Well, I don't know about you folks, but I get an uplifting feeling by reading this sort of stuff. Granted, it doesn't last terribly long --- but it feels good while it's here! Perhaps that's why I have so much of this kind of reading around the house --- a non-medical medicine. Who knows, eh?

PEACE.

"The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and three hundred and sixty-two admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision." - Lynne Lavner*** I'm confused; curious; satisfied; realistically resigned to being a frustrated idealist; usually at peace with myself, but not always. Amazed at how little I know, and wondering how much I need to understand.
