In the early stages of learning. Living proof that you really can teach an old salty dog new tricks!
This is how I envision my Path today. I sense peace here. There is a gate in the background so I know a change in direction will be soon. I sense wonderment and anticipation. (This photo has a filter applied.)
Photography is magical to me. I love taking 100 photos and finding “that one.” I love that a lens can draw a circle around something that evokes emotion in me, capture it, and preserve it to enjoy and sometimes share with others.
As I sit here contemplating today’s question, I sense a small jumble of “things” within that has no name. It seems as if it resembles wire, wound into a ball. Each wire has a voice, but maybe I haven’t listened. Yet.
The brightness of a moment,
can also be glaringly painful.
There is much to learn and we have a brand new day for it!
I can offer a sense of continuity. I am here. You are there. The hands of fellowship join us. I have time for you and my heart has room for your story.
I’ve noticed that during the extensive upheaval my family is suffering, I continually see challenges within myself and accept the work I need to do. Following that, I see how much of this has affected me and carries on out to many of my thoughts and judgments beyond my family. It is good to sometimes become uncomfortable with oneself.
A new day! I can’t wait to see what happens!
*”Fairness and Equitable Treatment: Each person matters as an individual. Decisions and actions must consider the dignity and rights of the individual to be considered to be fair. Equitable treatment does not necessarily mean treating everyone the same. Treating people fairly may require different approaches that do not imply a lesser standard of performance.”
Wow, that’s heavy. I’m going to think on this today.
We have several of these “firefly” solar-operated lights in our outdoor area. I love how they create light in their own little space of the vast darkness. Anything close enough to them is drawn a little bit into their light. They recharge in the sunshine, so they can keep their shine on when the sun sets and darkness abounds.
When I read your words, I felt a great love for you, Maryke. May standing in the rain always bring you joy!
I applaud your post, BabaYaga. You’ve put words to one of my inner feelings – convictions if you will. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing this mantra, Diane. It speaks to me.
‘And so today….after all the “doing” it is nice to just “be”.’ ← I love this sentence, Diane.
Your message is one of Hope. Just reading your story may spring up a well of optimism in hearts. I will remember you in my thoughts, KristiP. Thank you for being here and the first post I experienced in my gratefulness practice today.
well-put. You have a knack for describing.
Even more precious. Oh, those appointed moments!
When we quit judging, we quit hating.
You are a strong person, Michele, and I am thankful for you and for your calling to spread goodwill. My thoughts for you today are of peace and protection.
Your words spoke to me this morning, Corey. I want to be more mindful of “Am I behaving in a manner that’s creating peace or anxiety?”
How beautiful this song is, Patjos. Thinking of your heart-felt loss of your friend. Thank you for sharing this.
Congratulations, Lioness. Another new life to celebrate!
