Tuning Our motivations

A L O H A From Honolulu!

It was the Magic Hour,
the moment in time when
every leaf and blade of grass
seemed to separate,
when sunlight, burnished
by the rain and softened
by the coming night,
gave the world an
impossibly beautiful
  Kristin Hannah

You have been
criticizing yourself for years
and it hasn’t worked.
Try approving of yourself
and see what happens.
    Louise Hay   

Crows tumble
like socks in a drier.
David Mitchell

I love bright red drinks,
don’t you?
They taste twice as good
as any other color.
 Lucy Maud Montgomery

Then I get lost
in the beauty of the
morning sun and all of
the magnificence
that surrounds me.
 Debasish Mridha

They say you can't control
what happens, only your response to it. But the longer I live,
the more clearly I see how
each of us makes the version of reality
that we believe in.

We reinforce our view
of ourselves, others, and
of the larger world, by the things we say, do, and notice. Mostly we build our reality by
finding just what we expect.
Very few of us are willing to discover
where we are wrong, even though it is a liberation and birth of new possibilities.

Our choices,
our character,
and our actions
make us who we are,
and all results
flow from

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Criticizing myself is always a walking on the tightrope, in my opinion. Enjoy the days.
