    I love this! What a great mindset to have. What you wrote reminds me of a quote by Rainer Maria Rilke’s “Letters to a Young Poet.” What she has written reminds me to be present and that hindsight is always a great teacher.

    “…have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

    ps. I love that you love Mary Oliver, too! She is one of my greatest inspirations. I got to hear her speak last weekend and wrote about it in my newest blog post :-D
