The 3 Day Quote Challenge

Sometimes in the waves of change

We find our true direction ©annonymous

In this challenge, we’re told to write a quote and explain why we like it.

I like gaining insight in words. In these two lines, there is a great deal to learn.

We hesitate changing where we are even if we’re unhappy. We’re comfortable.

Change means adjusting to something new.

I love sitting at the beach and watching the waves hit the shore.

Each one is different. They never seem to mind that they are going to change the next time they

come to shore. If we can accept the changes in our lives, we just might find a better place to be.

Nurture Yourself – Accept Life’s Changes

Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint and the soil and sky as canvas. ©Elizabeth Murray

Drying roses or flowers remind us of the impermanence of life.
Our bodies and mind change over the years.
We become weaker. Our health declines despite our efforts.
But, there can be beauty at every stage of our lives.
Mother Nature provides great lessons about these stages
if we’re willing to see them.

Flowers wilt as they age. The petals become brittle. The colors fade.
When the time has come for precious flowers to leave us,
they play a symphony of shades of various colors for us to further enjoy.
Too often our fear of endings grasps our emotions.
We banish them to the disposable world
and, their beauty ends too soon.
Focus on the beauty of life’s changes.
Inevitably, we are all ephemeral.

Namaste
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.
