Alice was one smart little tripped out girl!

Its been a crazy week.  No doubt about it.   But I just wanted to share some things with you about life.  It seems hard sometimes, when you make certain decisions that you THINK will be okay, be productive, be fruitful, and then you begin to doubt yourself and your abilities.  You start wondering if all the long hours all the work all the money will start paying off and it is just plain TOUGH sometimes.   I have been pretty stressed out lately for many reasons, and it has been difficult to keep up my feelings of hope, but I have been reading Alice In Wonderland recently and ran across this quote that has really given me an extra push, and I am beginning to feel a bit better about things again.

'It was much pleasanter at home,' thought poor Alice, 'when one wasn't always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits. I almost wish I hadn't gone down that rabbit-hole — and yet — and yet — it's rather curious, you know, this sort of life! I do wonder what can have happened to me! When I used to read fairy-tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one! There ought to be a book written about me, that there ought! And when I grow up, I'll write one.'

It just made me realize that if I never jumped, I would never have any adventures, and what is LIFE without adventure?   The most crazy, upside down times in my life have also been my BEST  and most fulfilling adventures, and who am I to stop learning!
So for all of you always growing larger and smaller (getting pulled in all directions), for those of you plauged by ornery rabbits and mice (your precious children maybe?) For those of you perched at the edge of that dark hole of wonders that you haven't taken the plunge for fear of not knowing where you will end up, THIS IS FOR YOU.

SO here I go down the rabbit hole - arms outstretched and eyes wide open, anyone care to join me? :)

I've been down the rabbit hole many, many times. The adventures always change, and then it feels good to pop out to rest and relax.

Hmmm, time for another good adventure?...I'm right behind you...rabbit hole here I come!
