...frees you to be wonderful...

rising above our emotions
helps us to keep our hearts pure,
so that we can spread love and compassion more generously,
without compromise or complication.
love is usually associated with warmth,
and selfishness with coldness,
so this may seem surprising.
but relishing your own emotions
keeps your warmth to yourself,
whereas observing them with detachment
frees you to be wonderful.
~1,001 way to live in the moment

wishing you all the blessings of the season.
just BE.

Always learning how to just BE no matter what life throws our way and visiting you every week surely helps me stay on that path!
I hope you have a very Merry Happy Christmas Holiday!!!!

The red berries and tiny white lights impart peace to my soul. Thank you, Robin!


It’s that time of year,
The shadows make merry;
Fear not to draw near,
They’re no longer scary!
