I won’t argue it has been a tumultuous week with not much sleep and lots of rain. Sometimes when life gets tough, it is time for some love and beauty to cheer us up. I’ve been spending more time recently on developing my Instagram portfolio as it is another way for me to creatively express myself. I’ve played around with my photos and created some new shots of places that inspire me. I hope to send you some Instalove in this post filled with quotes and photos.
“Cease to be a drudge; seek to be an artist.”- Mary McLeod Bethune
“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceness as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh
“You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you.” – Mary Tyler Moore
“One’s life has value only so long as one attributes value to the lives of others by means of love, friendship, indignation, compassion.” – Simone de Beauvoir
“The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.” – Lin Yutang
“Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength.” – Dalai Lama
“Better keep yourself clean and bright: You are the window through which you must see the world.” – George Bernard Shaw
“Never look at what you have lost: look at what you have left.” – Robert H. Schuller
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the feeling that the world is losing its compassion. There is so much cruelty and hatred. I strive to be better than negativity, cruelty and intolerance. It is time to step up to the ugliness of some people and forget them. Move on. Happiness is one thing that money or anything can never buy. I am blessed that I have a life filled with love, purpose and happiness all around me. Thank you wonderful readers for supporting me and inspiring me to continue this blog.
