Weekly Intention -- Excerpt from The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching by Thich Nhat Hahn: There is a story in Zen circles about a man and a horse. The horse is galloping quickly, and it appears that the man on the horse is going somewhere important. Another man, standing alongside the road, shouts, “Where are you going?” and the first man replies, “I don’t know! Ask the horse!”

This week, let’s set the intention to stop being pulled by our money. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the markets, take the time to reassess your investments. Decide if they are still appropriate. And if you feel as if you’re drowning in bills, set aside time to put together a game plan. Maybe even learn How to take yourself on a Money Date.

But in the meantime, if you’re feeling as cooped up with this winter weather as we are, check out The Amateur's Guide to Visiting an Art Museum from and maybe set aside some time to visit your local Art Museum.  

Have a fantastic week!
