inspirations…

two very different men are inspiring
me in the mornings lately…

mark nepo and marcus aurelius.

two very different marks indeed!
mark nepo is a poet thru and thru.
his words soothe me.
and ol’ marcus aurelius, well my gosh, is so NOT a poet.
but i dig his straightforward thinking.

i read a little snippet from each of these guys to kinda
give myself a kick start into a good day.
mark had me in tears as i read a couple beautiful stories
that just moved me.
and marcus had me nodding, eyes wide, saying ‘oh yeah…’
and nodding in agreement.

and since marcus is shorter today –
and seems really helpful,
he’s the one i wanted to share with you here –

‘Choose not to be harmed – and you won’t feel harmed.
Don’t feel harmed – and you haven’t been.’


yeah, a straightforward kinda guy, huh?
i really like that.
good food for thought as you move along today.
