Quote of the Day

My cousin Kate and I went to an ugly Christmas sweater party last night. It was great . . . it would have been greater if EVERYONE had worn ugly sweaters. There were only a handful of us brave enough to do so. Anyway, I slept at Kate’s place last night and while I was reapplying my make-up this morning I noticed the following quote torn from a magazine and tucked into the side of her mirror. This is a mind-opening one. I’m going to memorize it . . .

The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status, and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems, and often political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.
