Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves.- Rainer Maria Rilke
This is a problem for me. I'm always trying to resolve the problems in my life. I must admit to you that I don't 'like' unsettled things. It makes me feel like I'm in limbo land. That's a signal to me that I need to work on that issue with myself.
I love this quote - what it says to me is - embrace (accept) all this is not resolved (in my life) - be patient (breathe) - live in the now anyway (even if I want things to change) - love the questions (when will I'll get to where I want to go) and the uncertainty (of how I will get there) - the answers will come when the time is ready.
What do you think? Rainer was a woman - with an interesting background - can't wait to get to her birthday. Sometimes the questions drives me nuts! Should I do this or should I do that!
Happy Birthday to Dr. Joyce Brothers (famous psychologist)
An interesting fact:
Brothers gained fame in late 1955 by winning The $64,000 Question game show, on which she appeared as an expert in the subject area of boxing. Originally, she had not planned to have boxing as her topic, but the sponsors suggested it, and she agreed. A voracious reader, she studied every reference book about boxing that she could find; she would later tell reporters that it was thanks to her good memory that she assimilated so much material and answered even the most difficult questions. In 1959, allegations that the quiz shows were rigged began to surface and stirred controversy. Despite these claims, Brothers insisted that she had never cheated, nor had she ever been given any answers to questions in advance. Subsequent investigations verified her assertions that she had won honestly. Her success on "The $64,000 Question" earned Brothers a chance to be the color commentator for CBS during the boxing match between Carmen Basilio and Sugar Ray Robinson. She was said to be the first woman to ever be a boxing commentator.
