  1. "You can be vulnerable and still be powerful.

    You can have a gentle heart and still be rock solid at your core.

    You can be calm as a breeze but fierce as a tiger.

    The best people embody both sides."

  2. We had to say goodbye to our 12-year-old pup Eliot, quite unexpectedly this morning. From the best the vet can surmize, he had likely been living with cancer for some time. He was a sweet, smart, quirky thing who would often show that same intelligence by coming to rub up against me and then thumping his tail furiously when asked, "Do you need something?" Only once one gave the right answer (food, outside, etc.) would he bolt for wherever that coveted thing was or was supposed to be. Please, tell me about those that touched your life.

      I agree.   Finding that person can be quite a challenge though!

      Agreed.  But it helps to know our own value.

      That is very true.

    The sky would be awfully dark with only one star."

      So true.

      Each if us have something to celebrate based on our talents. Each of us have means to make others smile with a simple compliment or even a smile in of itself towards another. lifting another up creates a bond towards a more pure togetherness that only a few of us have experienced. The more that experience this the more closer we all become 

  6. "Some of the kindest souls I know have lived in a world that was not so kind to them.  Some of the best human beings I know have been through so much at the hands of others, and they still love deeply, they still care.  Sometimes, it's the people who have been hurt the most that refuse to be hardened by this world because they never want another person to feel the same way that they have felt.  If that's not something to be in awe of, I don't know what is."

      this is me to a T.   I have always been kind and caring, but just experience loss and people who don’t appreciate it, or can’t be patient, when “life happens” and I need time.    I have come to a point I’m thinking it’s better off to be alone with my dogs.  They are much more loyal than most people.

      It is verrry interesting how complex we are as individuals and the choices we make based on our circumstances that occur in our lives. If we chose to rise above then we are automatically in a better place. If we chose to simmer within the turmoil then we are of no use to anyone including ourselves. * anything we say or do comes with an end result.

       

      what end result do we want? 

  7. This word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it. What word is it?
  8. We can all use a reminder now and again that there is good to be found in this world. It says something that despite how you may sometimes feel, you are able to acknowledge yours.

      I agree with Jade too, Red. If not quotes,  you always have statements or opinions that I think are very viable and great information.

  10. Agreed, hence the lack of intimidation.
  11. "Be the person who breaks the cycle.

    If you were judged, choose understanding.

    If you were rejected, choose acceptance.

    If you were shamed, choose compassion.

    Be the person you needed when you were hurting, not the person who hurt you.

    Vow to be better than what broke you, to heal instead of becoming bitter -

    so you can act from your heart, not your pain."   - Lori Deschaine

      Thanks for sharing this. I too really like the being the person you needed when you were hurting. 💜

      Wise words from one who seems to know depth is necessary in  any relationship. and breaking free from "reaction"  but moving towards positive action always changes the dynamics of situation that could be detrimental to both that are involved

  12. "Ah, kindness.  

    What a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is love to be found in this world."

  13. "To everyone who is trying right now - 

    Trying to do the right thing

    Trying to stay open

    Trying to keep going

    Trying to hold on

    Trying to let go.

    Trying to find their flow

    Trying to stay afloat

    Trying to meet each new day

    Trying to find their balance

    Trying new things and new ways

    Trying to love themselves.

     

    I see you.  I'm there too.  We're in this together."   --- S. C. Laurie
