Note to Self. Treat yourself the way you would treat a small child. Feed yourself healthy food and make sure you spend time outside. Put yourself to bed early. Let yourself take naps. Don't say mean things to yourself. Don't put yourself in danger. (your skull and your heart are still as a fragile as eggshells)
(Lakota prayer) Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery, Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my Sacred Space and love beyond my fear, and thus Walk in Balance with the passing of each glorious Sun.
"Maturity doesn't mean age. It means sensitivity, manners and how you react." So true! I knew a young girl who reacted calmly, with admirable manners, had great sensitivity towards other children and was very mature as well as responsible. I know an old man who is definitely immature, insensitive to many, rude and reacts in a hostile manner to many normal everyday occurrences.
