keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.

You are not your mind. You, a Spiritual BEing,
are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.

That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

and neither party loser.
