Love over fear

 

I bless this day for the wonderful adventure it can become
as I walk through it with the eyes of wonder rather than boredom,
use every opportunity to express peace rather than irritation,
and choose love over fear.

 

Wonder, peace and love…
we act on each of these by choice. Conscious, alert and with intent, we move ahead – moment by moment- pinching ourselves to remember the world needs these elements to be well and for survival.

No matter the challenge, facing the irritation and fear that fills the very air we breathe is so important. Offering the spirit of peace and compassion will make the difference.

Take it slow. To live by example will change the world.

what we give

 

I began my blog 10 years ago. The first entries were short. Each tested my confidence in writing and sharing myself to the unknown world of blogging. Over the years my bench has become a good place to reflect and share things that have inspired me.

Not long after I began this writing, I was introduced to Brené Brown. Her TedTalk on Vulnerability was moving and I felt a good piece to share. It has obviously spoken to many of my readers. Yes, I say many… as of yesterday that posting has been looked at 2484 times.

Several of my posts have been sought out more than once. I have grown in my comfort to share my stories and reflections.

My gratitude for Brené Brown continues. Her insight speaks to a universal longing to be bold and vulnerable. Her words resonate with life’s journey and intent.

It is right to celebrate my 10 years as a blogger with another post that includes Brené Brown. This quote gives me hope and nudges me on to contribute what I have to brighten life’s path and encourage others to do the same.

to grow ever kinder

Maybe our world will grow kinder eventually.
Maybe the desire to make something beautiful is the piece of God
that is inside each of us.

A weekend off…

Saturday morning. Thank you, David Kanigan 

 

Live & Learn

We’re so driven to make ourselves “better” all the time…

We are mercilessly hard on ourselves for our losses, our defeats, our wounds, our failures, the parts of us that don’t measure up.

This is a weekend in non-self-improvement….
