This article – You May Want to Marry my Husband – moved me.
When I read it, I was struck by the just, decent and loving nature of the author, Amy Krouse Rosenthal. I found myself wanting to know her better, and I wished that I could sit and talk with her for a while – just to listen to her thoughts. I was not surprised to learn that she is a writer.
I admire her acceptance of reality and her love for her husband. Talk about being a passionate valuer, eh?
This is an example of personal flourishing done well. In this video, Amy provides some examples of what she does to overcome the times we all have when we feel down, sad or hopeless:
It’s not something we do only when we feel good about our circumstances. No, it’s something we do even when we feel down, sad or hopeless. We nourish ourselves by refusing to waste the finite moments of our life.
Whenever I think about life and death, I’m reminded of this video by Sam Harris. While many people find Sam controversial, and while I don’t agree with everything he says or writes, he’s a smart and competent man. Please consider this short video of his:
The phrase “It is always now” has become a bit of a mantra for me – I even have it written in big red letters on a label stuck to the top of my laptop screen!
