30th Anniversary of Star Wars!

It is hard to believe that I am old enough to celebrate this monumentous anniversary … but alas, I remember seeing Star Wars at the movie theatre as a child. I hated it then, but I am in love with it now. Especially Yoda. He has become one of my spiritual advisors….

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” ~ Yoda

“Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings we are, not this crude matter. You must feel the force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.” ~ Yoda

See what I mean? Who needs to buy “The Secret“, when you can just rent Star Wars? Really, rent it. Watch it with new eyes. It is so much cooler 30 years later 🙂

Anyway, though I won’t let Isaac watch the Star Wars series for quite some time, I thought it best that he get to know Yoda in some small way while he is young. So, I made him a Yoda shirt (see above). Silly, I know … but darn cute!

May the Force Be With You. Always.

P.S. If you would like me to make your little one a Yoda shirt, please leave a comment and we can work it out. I only charge $10.
