When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You’re too this, or I’m too this.’ That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.Ram Dass (via the-starpilot-has-landed)

Um. I may have almost cried watching this. This little girls voice is insane!
-Greg still hasn’t found a job but he’s been working on it. We need a second car but both our credit is shot, I have student loans and 2 maxed out credit cards plus depending on what job Greg can find, it will be hard to afford a car payment and insurance. Thankfully my dad has been having him help on the farm to earn a little cash and keep busy.
-today one of our designers (my mom is the owner and has 2 designers under her) quit. She’s hoping when her home life settles she can come back part time in the fall. There is a dance competition tomorrow and we keep getting cheer skirts back that are too small (partly our fault, one of the seamstresses took too large of seams, and partly their fault for not sizing big enough). My mom is currently at home with my dad who just had shoulder replacement surgery yesterday. Which means tomorrow All the alterations and whatnot will be up to me to try and fix. Before the end of the day. It’s a whole bag of crazy.
-at the same time, we are about to enter our slow season which means possible reduced hours for me and that’s scary because Greg doesn’t have a job. And I feel weird about advertising my massage because my supplies are sub-par and my liability insurance expired. Oh and I don’t have a business license. And we only have 1 car so…..
-we are in charge of pack night this month and the lady that plans most of it is really sick and taking the month off. And we have a boy that’s moving on so we need to have this big arrow of light ceremony and what not. Oh and soccer is starting up which means like half the boys cant come at the normal time and so it’s needs to be right after school But I work until 4…
So that’s life. My last pair of jeans are
getting too snug. But at least I’m not dizzy and we haven’t defaulted on any bills yet.
