The opposite of play is not work – the opposite of play is depression.

Respecting our biologically programmed

need for play can transform work.

It can bring back excitement and newness to our job.

Play helps us deal with difficulties,

provides a sense of expansiveness,

promotes mastery of our craft and is an

essential part of the creative process.

Most important, true play that comes

from our own inner needs and desires is

the only path to finding lasting joy and

satisfaction in our work.

In the long run, work does not work without play.”

– Stuart Brown from ‘The Gifts of Imperfection’ by Brene Brown

The Return to Love

Mem(e)ories, Posts

I have been reading The Return to Love by @mariannewilliamson and she spoke about letting go of fear in order to be open to personal growth, comparing it to Michaelangelo’s artistic process where “he would go to the quarry and get a big piece of marble, and the way he imagined it God had already created the statue. And his job was just to get rid of the excess marble.

So that’s what we’re like: Inside is a being that God has already created; our job is to get rid of this excess — useless fear, thought forms of the world — that actually hide the light of the soul.” so, basically We are all living our greatest life story – we just can’t quite see it yet. 〰️

“the beauty in a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. the beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart; the place where love resides. true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul – it’s the caring and that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years”

~ Audrey Hepburn
