could be given an entire field of roses
and only see the thorns in it.
Others could be given a single weed
and only see the wildflower in it.
Perception is a key component to gratitude.
And gratitude is a key component to joy.”
~ Amy Weatherly
you have to let go of the picture
of what you thought life would be like
and learn to find joy in the story you’re living.”
“Some days i wish i could go back in life,
not to change anything,
but to feel a few things twice.”
“I’d rather learn to dance in the rain,
than worry if I have an umbrella for the rest of my life.”
~ Nikki Rowe more
“When was the last time you really let go?
The last time you were surprisingly silly
or belly laughed so hard your stomach muscles hurt?
Life doesn’t have to be so serious, does it?
Please, love, be goofy.
It keeps you young.
Keeps your jaw loose.
Gives the folks around you yet,
one more reason to smile big.
It’s time to let your joy out of its cage.”
