If you knew that everything is possible.
If you allowed yourself to shape reality in any way your heart tells you to.
What would that look like?
Don’t hold back.
I didn’t take this picture, nor did I write the words, but looking at it simply makes me smile
– and it’s not the worst philosophy to live by.
Don’t hold back.
Today I spent all day in a workshop, examining assumptions about inner power and limitations to happiness. I mean, that’s the short version. The very short version. It was very Anthony Robbins’ish, which is to say a little hyper with lots of catch-phrases, and a fair amount of shouting YES! I’d received this workshop as a gift from a friend and had decided to just show up with an open mind and see what might happen. I definitely left feeling enriched – and also a little amused with the whole show of it.
Anyway, this Sanskrit prayer was hanging in the hallway, and in a way it did the exact same job in just a minute that the workshop was doing in a whole day; reminding me to be present, and live my life well. Now.
Too busy, and also too much in-process these days to actually form original sentences, but I do constantly stumble upon quotes that perfectly describe this beautiful process of life, in me and around me. Like this one..
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”
~ Lao Tzu
.. and never too old, either.
So whatever your dream is, go for it!
– and never ever give up ♥
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
~ Kurt Vonnegut
I did not make this, it’s something I came across online and really wanted to share here.
The lines and the colors of it feels raw, almost coincidental, and the message is so simple and so true.
Isn’t is lovely?
