Everyday presents itself, a lesson, maybe more.
All we have to do, is be open enough to receive it.
They reach and speak to us in the most profound
of ways, jerking our every being and shaking our
perspectives. They may not always be wrapped
neatly in a little package, some might even take
lots of deep searching, but they hold the key to
"Always Remember", "Never Forget"

I love words like these. They sound a tad young and foolhardy, but I don't think they are. Events that shape us, moments in life, the people we love and those that love us. I even remember saying to myself how I wanted to get that tattooed on my chest, over my heart.
I remember.. what it feels like to blog. To spread my feelings and insight onto a page for me, just for me. And it feels a little foreign, and jerky, but also reminds me and pulls me back into self reflection.

"Being still and doing nothing are two very different things."

There are times when we should, no we must.. be still. And quieten the thoughts that run us, the voices that scare us, and our own voice. Deep breaths and quiet spaces, empty minds make for a peaceful heart. Be still racing heart, anger, fear and doubt never accomplished anything.

Be still racing heart.
