The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You an turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose. -Arnold Bennett

Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there’s a big disappointment, we don’t know if that’s the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don’t know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don’t know. -Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times

We grow up with such an idealistic view on how our life should be; love, friendships, a career or even the place we will live ~ only to age and realize none of it is what you expected & reality is a little disheartening, when you’ve reached that realization; you have learnt the gift of all, any new beginning can start now and if you want anything bad enough you’ll find the courage to pursue it with all you have. The past doesn’t have to be the future, stop making it so. – Nikki Rowe

Sometimes we may ask God for success, and He gives us physical and mental stamina. We might plead for prosperity, and we receive enlarged perspective and increased patience, or we petition for growth and are blessed with the gift of grace. He may bestow upon us conviction and confidence as we strive to achieve worthy goals. -David A. Bednar

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

“But flowers feed our soul in a different way. They remind us of a God who creates beautiful things and takes notice of the tiniest detail”
― Tricia Goyer, A Christmas Gift for Rose

 

“Buying flowers is not just a way to bring home beauty. It’s an expression of confidence that better days are coming. It’s a defiant finger in the face of those naysayers who would have you believe your fortunes will never improve.”

“When the time has come, every leaf turns to face the sun!

It doesn’t know if it has to, but because the call has reached it:
Not knowing what to expect, it will, move slightly, twist patiently
and try to embrace whatever is coming!

It might be too strong, it might be too weak,
it also might just be perfect!”
― Akilnathan Logeswaran
