Quote of the day:
“To be mature you have to realize what you value most. It is extraordinary to discover that comparatively few people reach this level of maturity. They seem never to have paused to consider what has value for them. They spend great effort and sometimes make great sacrifices for values that, fundamentally, meet no real needs of their own. Perhaps they have imbibed the values of their particular profession or job, of their community or their neighbors, of their parents or family. Not to arrive at a clear understanding of one’s own values is a tragic waste. You have missed the whole point of what life is for.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living
One of the things I learned from the BDSM and M/s communities online is to be able to sit down and differentiate carefully between what you need, what you want, and what you desire. The first thing a Master or Dominant does is have their sub or slave think about this and then put it in writing for clarity. There is something about divvying up the list of feelings and stuff into those three categories that forces you to examine your values because you have to decide what are the non-negotiable items in your life
I still struggle to value Mondays though. Even if they are the gift of a new day and week….
