"I want something else. I’m not even sure what to call it anymore except I know it feels roomy and it’s drenched in sunlight and it’s weightless and I know it’s not cheap. Probably not even real."

In an unhealthy “compulsive mode” I was shuffling through work papers and found this creative therapy I did a month or so ago.
I stopped and allowed myself the opportunity to notice and let go of my current state… And I allowed myself to breathe.
I am filled with gratitude for a cheap fude pen, the backsides of old paper and this gentle note to self. Wishing now that each one of you might create and perhaps later find your own #gentlenotetoself

"Listen to your being. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a still, small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way. Be the person you are. Never try to be another, and you will become mature. Maturity is accepting the responsibility of being oneself, whatsoever the cost. Risking all to be oneself, that’s what maturity is all about."

"I don’t consider the books to be anti-authoritarian. But I do think it is important, if you think something is wrong, to question authority — because, you know, there are villains in real life, and they don’t always wear black capes and black hats. Sometimes they’re dressed like authority figures. And kids need to know that it’s important to question them."

Author Dav Pikley’s reaction to Captain Underpants earning the number one spot as the most frequently challenged book in America. The book has topped the most challenged books list for two years now. (via npr)
