"Although I speak from my own experience, I feel that no one has the right to impose his or her beliefs on another person. I will not propose to you that my way is best. The decision is up to you. If you find some point which may be suitable for you, then you can carry out experiments for yourself. If you find that it is off no use, then you can discard it." Dalai Lama...

A life worth living...

I have a major headache and have been to bed and had to get back up again as I couldn't get to sleep but can't settle to watch TV or read so have come on to browse a little and have decided it probably isn't a good idea!Bright light and bad head don't mix, but now I'm on I'll be quick.
I came accross a qoute by John Holt on a websit tonight, it's the first time I've seen it and it ties in nicely with the title I choose for this blog.

"A life worth living and work worth doing is what I want for all children"

It was our Home ed group meeting today and then a few of us went to a friends house to have a cuppa and a chat afterwards and we had a good discussion about our philosophy's and what we want for our children and some of the fears about what our children will do in the long term.I think the quote above kind of covers my hope for Emily.It doesn't matter about whether it is a "good" job or pays great money so long as she is happy and if the job she chooses to do is worth doing for her then that is what matters.

I have great difficulty making sense without a thumper of a headache so I hope this all makes some kind of sense and you get the essence of what I mean.Back to bed and hope to feel better tomorrow......

I've uploaded a picture Chloe drew on Emily's blog to my blog, and was going to link but then thought that might not be such a good idea. She mentions in an early post where you live so you may want to edit that?

Hope you're feeling better btw.

Hi, Many thanks for that, I thought we had edited out any reference.
We had a lot of fun!!!!???? putting Emily's blog together as I initially had it under my account and then realised that wasn't the way to do it and set up her own account so I think I copied over the post without checking it properly in my flustered state.
I am feeling much better today thanks XXX
