We are not what you think we are...

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
~Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Take a deep breath.Stop from anything you were doing.Listen.Try to get over the ear splitting noise of the busy town you're living in or the beautiful singing voices of the birds.Listen to you.The real you.Who says when it's time to eat or drink, to sleep or walk.That you knows everything about you.And more.
Though, you'd never listen to yourself.Why?Oh, there would be so many reasons.Some would be, of course, excuses, but our mind easily transforms them into reasons.Unexplicable.Though, take it the other way.Why not?
What would be wrong about not paing attention to what everybody else says and listen to you?Do what you like, not what you're told?And, though you don't really know what to do,you know for sure what you don't want to do.So, leave everything behind.Right now.
Listen to you.And do it carefully.You have the choice.And the right to choose.So, now, what do you hear?

Sometimes we get too caught up in caring what other people think or say, it's nice to clear our heads, listen to our own voice, our own hearts - our own gut. Thank you for the reminder :)

Hi Ruxanda! I've been *assigned* as your partner for the A Bun Can Dance Letter Writing tag! Exciting. ^^ Was wondering who wanted to write first, so our letters don't cross! Also, I'm doubly glad about the challenge because it meant I got to discover your blog - it's gorgeous. I love the mix of famous quotes and your own words, and the illustrations. It's like stumbling into a dream! Love xx
