Cat’s Morning Bits for March 2, 2018
Good Morning, grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and let’s start things off with “Today’s Inspirations”. I hope you find something here that will make you feel good or help you on your path today.
Handle a book as a bee does a flower,
extract its sweetness but do not damage it.”
John Muir (1838-1914)
Mind Body Green: Undo Stress & Tension With This 5-Minute Ritual
It’s not always realistic to run yourself a #selfcare bath, especially if life is busy or if you don’t have a big enough bathtub! But there is a way to get the same benefits of a bath without expending nearly as much time, effort, or resources. Enter: the foot soak.
Beliefnet: Inspiring Quotes on Having Patience
It has been said, “Patience is a virtue” and “good things come to those who wait.” When we learn to accept what is, and embrace life in each present moment, our impatience often falls away. These beautiful quotes will inspire you to have more patience in life.
Atlas Obscura: Cuilcagh Legnabrocky Trail
A meandering boardwalk across the bogland leads to a “stairway to heaven” with sublime views. Don’t let the charming boardwalk or Instagramable “stairway to heaven” fool you. This formidable hike takes you through some of Northern Ireland’s toughest and most desolate terrain. However, the breathtaking landscape and views from the summit of Cuilcagh Mountain surely make it worth the trek.
A Bountiful Moment:
Born into greatness conditioned into mediocrity ~Unknown
Every one of us is great. There are no exceptions to this rule. Expectations, criticisms, or judgements of others change who you think you are. Believing that you are not good enough, or that you cannot do things is a sign that past judgements are embedded in your memory. Change then becomes based in a self-deficit instead of the truth. You are already great and you have everything you need to accomplish what you want.
Work from a position of power today. Embrace the knowledge that you are already as great as you need to be and that your decision to achieve a goal is a choice not a need. Work from a place of choosing the next step in your journey not responding to what others are or have dictated to you.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

EarthSky News: See all 5 bright planets in March
You can’t see them simultaneously. But, especially from the Northern Hemisphere, March 2018 is a great month for catching all 5 bright planets either after sunset, or before dawn.
Patheos-Pagan: The Morrigan Calls More Than Warriors
What does the Morrigan want with me? I’m not a warrior.
I’ve heard that question multiple times over the past few weeks. The Morrigan the Irish Goddess of sovereignty, of battle, and of the aftermath of battle is one of the most active deities of our time. Apparently She’s on another recruiting drive. Or perhaps Sheï¿½s just recruiting in my neighborhood this time.
DO YOU LOVE YOURSELF?
“At the heart of personality is the need to feel a sense of being lovable without having to qualify for that acceptance.”
— Dr. Paul Tournier
How do you see yourself as unlovable?
Take a few minutes to write down why you perceive yourself to be unlovable. Look at the list and see if you can identify where those characterizations originated. Can you pinpoint old messages from parents, teachers, and friends that led you to negative conclusions about yourself? Are those messages valid today?
The beliefs we adopt as children usually don’t hold when we view them objectively as adults. Can you let them go? Can you begin to see yourself as a unique expression of life, a genuine gift to the world?
“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
“Limitless like the ocean are your excellent qualities.”
— Dalai Lama

“Intelligence alone, without wisdom and empathy for suffering, is hollow.”-John G. Stoessinger
Intelligence is a wonderful trait, it serves us well in so many ways. And yet, wisdom, which is knowledge seasoned with experience, and compassion, which is heartfelt empathy, makes us all the more intelligent.
