Guidance from a Little Guru!

DaddysLittleGuru“I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.”

~Oscar Wilde

I know I haven’t written a post here in a long time. I was too busy healing. Since my last post in August 2013, over a year ago, I have been on quite the roller coaster ride. I cannot share everything that has occurred because I respect the privacy of others. All I can say is that I am very grateful for everything that life has brought me. As difficult as it has been, it has made me who I am today – a person able to live freely and authentically without reservation or hesitation.

Why begin writing again now and why this quote? Last weekend, my beautiful 5 year old boy Julian was over and I read him a great quote that I saw in a calendar which stated; “Never bet against a person who won’t quit.” After explaining the meaning of the quote to him, he absolutely loved it. I then showed him my thought-of-the-week board. For years, I would write a thought of the week up on a whiteboard in my exercise studio (but I also stopped writing these since August 2013). He immediately encouraged me to write the quote up on the whiteboard so I did and I admit, it felt great to do this again. This weekend he said; “Dad we have to put up a new thought of the week.” Bless his precious heart. I think pretty soon he may even take over this blog. :)

Anyway, today we read through some quotes together and he chose this one above from Oscar Wilde because it made him laugh. I know he is only 5 but he is wise beyond his years – my little guru. This boy has seen his family break apart and yet, he continues to shine brighter and brighter with each passing day. For me, he has become a constant reminder of how life should be lived. And because I feel most alive when I teach, I have decided to blog more frequently again.

Thanks Julian!
