In case you missed any of the postings from 75 Good Days, once every couple of weeks I will post the previous weeks’ photos and quotes here. If you don’t want to miss the daily posts, you can find them on my fb page, Carol Vinson Upside Down Grace.
Diana Butler Bass posted the following on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, “75 days to the election. I invite you to flood Twitter with thoughts about peace, love, and grace. #75GoodDays”
“How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.”
“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths. ”
“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.” Anna Quindlen
“Belief isn’t always easy.
But this much I have learned—
if not enough else—
to live with my eyes open.”
“Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.” bell hooks
“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”
There are days you need to be reminded that the light is winning. Even in what looks to be a tangled mess, beauty can always be found. Let’s make sure we are looking for it.
Trust in the Light.
Darkness is not a force –
it is merely the absence of light.
Observe that when a light is brought to a dark place,
the darkness disappears.
Sadness is similar –
when joy is brought to suffering,
the sadness disappears.
Open yourself to the Light!
Hold back nothing,
Trust in the Light.
Jonathan Lockwood Huie
“It can be a beautiful experience to look for the magic that is hidden within the realm of our lives; but let’s not let the process blind us to the majesty that is right in front of us.”
“The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love.” Joseph B. Wirthlin
Let’s make an effort to be present. To notice…someone needs to be seen.
