Nurture Yourself – Don’t Lose Heart


Nurture Yourself - 550 - Gems1:282016.web

As we walk this journey we call life, there are bound to be rocky roads.

Paths paved in stones of different shapes and sizes that cause us

to stumble and fall from suffering, heartache and pain.

At times, the rough terrain is difficult. But, we can polish the rocks smoothly

if we believe in ourselves to carry on.

It’s up to us to creatively approach our problem-solving and grind

our own collection of rocks into precious gems.

Don’t lose heart as you continue to walk your path.


Our lives are rocky in so many ways.
The challenge before us is to not let these rocks
grind us down to dust but to let us become polished brilliant gems.

Don’t Lose Heart ~ Dan Fogelberg [ CC ]

I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me.
We are One.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  3. Nice post, Isadora!
    The thing about knowing that the path we’re on is treacherous is finding a better way around.

    • Yes, I agree Tom. We should be able to navigate around difficulties and find new paths. But, if we don’t see those other paths and go to them we stagnate. The moment we open ourselves up the paths become clear. I’m happy for the inspiring dialog. Have a GREAT weekend !!!

  10. Hi Isadora, beautiful message, we should follow nature steps and polish our rocks like the ocean, rivers polish their rocks. But most of the time we only want throw the rock away, far away from us, forgetting that it will come back and we take the right care of it. Have a great night!
