Things said in passing . . .

Funny how sometimes something said in passing can get one to thinking . . .

I’m in a very good place in my life right now.

I am very comfortable in my own skin,

perhaps because it is looser.

I’m slowing down and noticing all the beauty around me.

Oh, I’ve had pain and loss and darkness in my life

I just don’t live there anymore.

The secret, perhaps to overcoming the seasons of mourning is refusing to stay.

What's up with blogger I had something profound to say and it got eaten!

Here goes again:

I have everything I need and everyone I love.

The most difficult lesson is getting rid of toxic people who wanted to be in my life and learning not to hate.

I am blessed with true friends now.

I have many life stars.

I am in love!

Thanks for that wisdom - I am choosing not to live in darkness and pain anymore either.

It's amazing to me how God opened my eyes to all the beauty around me. When I think of all the autumns that I never paid attention to the changing leaves or the smell of spring... I'm just so glad that I realized the beauty and wonder around me , and have been enjoying it for 10 years now. Great post. Lovely pics Deb. Love the looser skin comment :o)

Ces said...

Not only do I have loose sking, I have extra, what happened, where did it come from? HAHAHAHHA! Just kidding.

Really what's with getting old? You are the most youthful beautiful 57 year old blogger I know.

...and someday I would like to measure up to those long legs of yours. Ugh, I am practicing wearing 6 inch heels.

Javajune said...
