don’t miss issue #30 of this joy+ride. so so inspiring. i can’t stop thinking about penny dullaghan‘s words and how she illustrates them in her short and beautiful animated film.

i love the idea that i don’t have to jump on and ride each passing storm that flows through me (or near me). i can just be a witness. i can just observe and then let it pass me by. my emotions don’t have to be who i am all the time. they truly can be just how i feel.

    this post struck me with its beauty and its truth…it is OK just to witness, i am holding on to those last thoughts ~

    Love this sentiment & it’s something I’ve been trying to do as I get older. My husband’s and acquaintances’ moods are not my moods. Let it all rush over.

    Thanks for the reminder.
