Look up

Look up

“Maybe we simply need now and then to look up at the silent stars and lose ourselves to be set free.” ~Br. David Steindl-Rast

When I’m feeling overwhelmed and stuck in life’s problems, there’s nothing like re-connecting with what’s greater than me to help me step outside my worries, see things in a new way, and thereby be set free.

A path to kindness

A path to kindness

“It’s really easy to be kind to others when I remember that none of us came into this world with a manual about how to get it all right.” ~Jill Bolte Taylor

It’s also easier to be kind to myself when I remind myself that there is no manual, and we’re all just trying to find our way through a challenging and messy world.

Gratefulness

Gratefulness

“Gratefulness helps us return to ourselves, restoring our equilibrium and helping us to see beyond what’s broken to the beauty and wholeness of life.” ~Tim Roberts

When we are hurting, it’s easy to become so focused on what’s causing us pain that we see nothing else. Gratefulness helps widen our view to remind us that there is more to life than just the pain we are facing. Rediscovering the beauty and wholeness that still exists can help us navigate our pain with greater ease.

A cure for overwhelm

A cure for overwhelm

“When life feels too big to handle, go outside. Everything looks smaller when you’re standing under the sky.” ~L.R. Knost

The easiest way to break through the anxiety cycle of overwhelm is to put everything back into perspective by spending a little time in nature. There’s nothing like the vastness of the sky above to help us find our footing again.
