There Is A Space

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

Between stimulus and response
there is a space. In that space is
our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our
growth and our freedom.
Victor Frankl 

It’s exhilarating to come closer
and closer to self-discipline.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
When you are not sure, 
flip a coin because while 
the coin is in the air, you
realize which one 
you are actually hoping for.
        Jay Shetty


Real friends never leave
each other, never part.
They just sometimes sit
silently, deep within each
other's heart, saying,
“I'm just here if you need me."

A breath, a pause,
A moment to choose.
True power one
day at a time.

Champagne to my real friends.
Real pain to my sham friends.

Nice work shooting the moon! Last night was the Mid-Autumn Festival's full moon. That shot of Pixie is amazing; she looks like she's contemplating the choice between catnip and tuna treats, which will she enjoy today?
