The four agreements ~
to make with ourselves.
“1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don't Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don't Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.”
~ Miguel Ruiz
The four agreements
I read this book a while ago but I try to remember and practice the agreements. It has made life easier.
We've been purging the house and getting ready for the new year. We're still under construction. It is taking a lot longer than we had estimated. But hopefully by warm weather we'll be using the new rooms. I love Mondays. They are Bronx days. It is so nice having him around. Today I had Seth as well and we dropped Bronx off back home before heading to see "The Nut Job" picking up cousin Jackson for the movie as well.
These are some shots around the barn today. Bronx loves working in the hay. Climbing, trying to find Maggie and feeding the horses. I am going to throw in some basketball shots too :)
Seth in the huddle. He is such a sweet kid.
