Whenever something happens in my life, my Mother tells me that nothing happens without God willing it. I want to believe so much that there is a plan, that God has set my destiny and there was nothing more or less I could have done. Do you feel the presence of God in your life?
Sometimes things seem hopeless. There seems to be no way to make it in the world in this day and age. The celebrity culture turns people over at an alarming rate. How can we make it in a world that is now spinning faster than ever and with an attention span shorter than ever? I am trying to figure this out as I go too. I am hoping to break the vicious cycle. Remember to stay at your dreams and believe in yourself. The universe will conspire to help you. The possibility of what you want in life will help you get through the days until you actually achieve it.
How do we deal with love? What do you do if your partner seems to be doing inconsiderate things to you all the time but says that you are just misunderstanding of the situation at hand? Do you forgive again and again and hope for better or do you end the relationship that means so much to you? I don’t know the answer to these questions. I was wondering what everyone’s thoughts on the subject are. Please share! We need one another’s help! Have you ever been in love and went through bad times with someone that only led to good?
I have always loved reading about Native Americans. Ever since I was a child I was fascinated by them and wanted to grow up to be a Native American. Children!
I always have this quote in my mind, from Crowfoot, “What is life, is it the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breathe of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset”.
Whenever I am at odds with myself, with life, I think about this often. I want to try and enjoy my life. I want people in my life that care about me. That want to be next to me all the time, before it is too late. What are the things you want in life? Are you able to stay happy while you are trying to obtain them? What are your secrets?
It was one of those days. Rainy, dreary, the works. But I could not help but think that this too serves it’s purpose. That the earth needs the rain, that we need cloudy days in order to really appreciate the sun filled ones. It was hard for me to concentrate today, yet I made it through the day. I remember being a small girl, loving to read on rainy days. I hope you too can find meaning and powerful, motivating memories in gloomy days. Because this too shall pass.
What thoughts help you get through the rain?
In my part of the world (New York City) we had a lovely little snowfall that started Friday night and went on through to Saturday evening. If you’ve never seen New York in the winter, you should! It can be extremely beautiful. It is also my brother’s birthday today, so the snow seems extra special. I wanted to share that happiness with everyone and hope it reaches you all.
Please be grateful for the gifts and blessings you have been given in life. It is so very cold out there and we should always remember that “There, but for the grace of God, go I”. Any little bit can help those in need. Even a dollar given to the right charity or donating your old coats and winter clothes to a local house of worship or your preferred charitable organization.
For now, enjoy these two photos, please! From my family to yours! Send me some of your favorite winter shots! Do you have a favorite thing about winter? What is it?
I guess I am creating this web page out of necessity. I need inspiration, motivation, a greater sense of self, as much as the next person does. I want to gather inspiring stories from all over the world and put it all in one place, to show you and to show myself. I want you to send me your stories so I can show the world too. It is very funny how life works, we tend to move towards what we need and want without our even knowing it. This is what I need and want. Inspiration coming from you to show myself and to show the world that goodness is alive, that hard work pays off, that love is real and conquers all; and that to believe is the most powerful force in the world. What is it that drives you?
