Love must be learned and re-learned constantly it seems. It can be so hard to love even though it’s the most natural thing, just like crying.
(Apologies in advance if cheesy)
I challenge myself to dream and envision as big, bold and beautiful as possible.
I challenge myself to then conceive of and walk the path that leads to it, which is as simple and beautiful as possible.
Finally, I surrender to the flow of the ever-changing present moment.
Compassion for your self makes possible…
Compassion for your kin and others, which makes possible…
Compassion for life and death, our mortality and what we imagine to lie beyond it
If some longing goes unmet, don’t be astonished. We call that Life.
~ Anna Freud
Today I do not interpret a sense of longing as an indication that something is wrong or even necessarily missing, but rather that longing is simply part of our human condition.
