...the still point in the middle...


when life is hectic or stressed,
remember that every hurricane has it's "eye,"
the still point in the middle of the raging winds.
you too can retain a calm center,
by remembering that your essential self is immune to circumstances.
trust in your ability to respond to any situation
with courage and wisdom
you can draw from the core of your being.
~1,001 ways to live in the moment

i think we forget.
how strong we really are.
don't forget.
just BE.

When we are tested is when we learn our true strength!

I've been told I'm strong, I'm resilient..I never quite believe it. But I guess I should.

We get bogged down in the minutiae of details and such - that is when we forget our resiliency and our doggedness and strength. To be able to analyze and correct the situation. Strength we have - just need to remember and realize it...

Amazing shot Robin!
The beautiful individual snow crystals are really a great visual reminder that it is recognizing of: the tiny, individual,& over-looked, that will give us the blessing of a good content life or not.
Cheers,
Leah

Love the parallel of life's tumults with a hurricane and its eye - the still, small voice, the peace, the silence within! So lovely! And adore your atmospheric photo! The bokeh is enchanting!

Love the quote you used - especially the line "you can draw from the core of your being." We all need to do this.
Such an interesting photo as well!
