Sometimes you can’t change and you can’t choose…
Hope is the thing with feathers…
The new year stands before us…
Christmas waves a magic wand…
It’s International Day of Persons with Disability tomorrow, Friday 3rd December! Today I am sharing one of the moving quotes by Robin M. Eames from the anthology Growing Up Disabled in Australia.
It’s a funny thing about life…
Gratitude turns what we have into enough…
Run towards it like someone left the gate open.
It’ll wake you up…
I’m not afraid of storms…
The friend who holds your hand…
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?
The soul moves through seasons too…
Leave your heart to wander…
The treasure I was being directed to
An ability to entertain the uncomfortable.
It sometimes feels like we have nothing left to give, and yet…
May 12th is International Awareness Day for Chronic Immunological and Neurological Diseases (CIND) so here are a few words today in honour of the Lady with the Lamp.
… and am free.
The bravest thing.
This, too, was a gift.
To clear your path.
What remains? Nature.
The greatest thing we can do.
… Isn’t it splendid?!
It may just help.
Guard well your spare moments…
This is the time to be slow
Maybe it’s not about having a beautiful day
Do not be afraid of your difficulties.
Not the flower.
For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone.
Cherish sunsets, wild creatures and wild places.
Why, who makes much of a miracle?
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language.
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness.
Depends on our dispositions
I wish none of this had happened.
Wherever you are, at any moment, try and find something beautiful.
When I am among the trees
This is the power of gathering:
Look on each day that comes as a challenge, as a test of courage.
Hope is like the sun.
A ‘human’ thing.
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” ― James Baldwin
You can not prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair. – Chinese Proverb
The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis’. One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger – but recognise the opportunity. – John F. Kennedy
In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you. – Andrea Dykstra
