Some of What I’ve Learned

It seems to me that life is the best teacher and, as my readers know by now, I believe there are no “accidents.”  Everything that happens to us holds an opportunity for evolutionary advancement.  Will we recognize it?  I didn’t use to.

Now it’s different.  I’ve learned some things I want to share with all of you …

  • I’ve learned that I’d rather have peace than drama
  • I’ve learned that out of chaos and confusion, there’s always some clarity
  • I’ve learned that forgiveness is the key to a peaceful life
  • I’ve learned that it’s just as easy to take the high road as it is the low road – but only if I ask my ego to take an alternate route
  • I’ve learned that no matter what … life is a temporary assignment, so I’d better make the best of it
  • I’ve learned that what goes around comes around
  • I’ve learned that a good attitude is worth its weight in gold

That’s all for now.  Have to make dinner but I’m wishing you all a beautiful, love-filled weekend.

This photo is the most popular one at my gallery, so I thought it might be fun to turn it into one of those motivational posters.  The phrase below it really has nothing to do with the flowers, but hey, I’m tired of coloring within the lines 🙂 Namaste’

The Chairs

While visiting my parents today, I walked around the grounds of the facility looking for something to photograph.  The grounds are lush with beautiful plants, flowers and real, living grass, which is rare in southern Arizona.  Mostly we have decorative rock in lieu of lawns in an effort to conserve water in our landscaping.  But maybe they feel that most of the folks that live in assisted living might like to look out their windows and see some green grass.  It really is pretty and reminded me of when I was a kid.  I took my sandals off and just walked through it.  It was so much fun!

But I digress.  Today’s photo is of a row of chairs which I thought were interesting as they were pushed up against the courtyard wall so that they faced the fountain.  I love water features,   so after photographing the empty gallery of chairs, I sat for a while and just watched and listened to the water.  Peaceful moments.  I needed that today.
