Sunday Serenity: Incoming …

Storms come and go. Our resilience dictates how we’ll endure. Do we grow from the experience, or cast ourselves as the victims of circumstance?

It’s a choice.

Like the horse I choose to put my back to the wind and stand my ground until the storm passes. Only then is the way made clear for next steps.

Storms pass, and we can rise in the wake, or sink with the tide.

I choose to rise.

Thanks for visiting …

Throwback Thursday: Glendalough

~*~

When I’m feeling distraught or unsettled about life beyond my control I turn my heart to that which brings me joy. We used to travel a lot and one of my fondest memories belongs to a couple of hours spent wandering through the ruins of an ancient monastary at beautiful Glendalough in Co. Wicklow, Ireland.

Recently, and to my great delight, I’ve learned it’s possible some of my Irish ancestors who emigrated to North America in the 1800s originated in this area.

Beyond my appreciation for its obvious beauty perhaps this explains my feelings of connection.

During these intense and challenging times I return to this memory to bring peace to my heart and to help me be a source of peace for others.

It’s what the world needs now … that and love, sweet love.

Be well and thanks for visiting …

Sunday Serenity: Sunrise Anomalies

Do any of us ever really know what’s on the horizon?

Perhaps not. Still, we have the ability to choose where we put our focus and how we respond to those elements that surprise us.

This morning I found the horizon to be really intriguing.

May whatever you choose to focus on, and respond to, bring you joy and a sense of the miraculous.

Thanks for visiting,

Dorothy

Sunday Serenity: Asparagus Orbs

It’s Thanksgiving Sunday in Canada.

In a complex and complicated world I give thanks for life’s simple pleasures. Dew drops on asparagus fronds dazzle and delight the eye early on an autumn morning. In that moment not a care, just a reassuring sense that I can choose where I put my focus and how I allow it to impact my feelings of well being.

I wish you well being and happiness wherever you are, and give thanks for your presence and support of my creative expression.

Thanks for visiting …
