“Every time you do a good deed
you shine the light a little farther into the dark.
And the thing is, when you’re gone
that light is going to keep shining on,
pushing the shadows back.”

~ Charles de Lint

a tenderness in one’s spirit…

Real strength is not just a condition of one’s muscle,
but a tenderness in one’s spirit…

If not now, when?

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another.
Then we are frustrated that the kids aren’t old enough, and we’ll be more content when they are.

After that, we’re frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.

We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our partner gets his or her act together when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice holiday, when we retire.

The truth is, there’s no better time to be happy than right now.
If not now, when?

When life brings you mountains . . .

“When life brings you mountains
you don’t waste your time asking why;
you spend your time climbing over them.”

– A.J. Darkholme

Today I am blessed.

“The ship of my life may or may not be sailing
on calm and amiable seas.
The challenging days of my existence may
or may not be bright and promising.
Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights,
I maintain an attitude of gratitude.
If I insist on being pessimistic,
there is always tomorrow.
Today I am blessed.”

~ Maya Angelou

I wanted to hurry into the work of my life

“I wanted the past to go away,
I wanted to leave it, like another country;
I wanted my life to close, and open
like a hinge, like a wing,
like the part of the song
where it falls down over the rocks:
an explosion, a discovery;
I wanted to hurry into the work of my life;…”

~Mary Oliver

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

20604424_1513411142012415_3222141534517751291_n

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend”.

~ Melody Beattie
