inspire: 1. have an influence upon; cause to act. 2. produce a feeling
I was visiting one of my favorite blogs by the incredible donnadowney.typepad.com
this morning and there she had shared the words of the beautiful english poet Sandra Sturtz Hauss
I was so moved, so INSPIRED, so left with a feeling of thankfulness, absolute gratitude for the gift of these words...
Like Donna I felt the need to share in hopes that these words would find their way to those parts of yourself where all those thoughts, all those ideas, all that stuff resides...
and then...who knows?
May you have a most wonderful Saturday!May you find serenity and tranquilityin a world you may not always understand.
May the pain you have knownand the conflict you have experiencedgive you the strength to walk through lifefacing each new situation with courage and optimism.
Always know that there are thosewhose love and understanding will always be there,even when you feel most alone.
May a kind word,a reassuring touch,and a warm smilebe yours every day of your life,and may you give these giftsas well as receive them.
May the teachings of those you admirebecome part of you,so that you may call upon them.
Remember, those whose lives you have touchedand who have touched yoursare always a part of you,even if the encounters were less than you would have wished.It is the content of the encounterthat is more important than its form.
May you not become too concerned with material matters,but instead place immeasurable valueon the goodness in your heart.Find time in each day to see beauty and lovein the world around you.
Realize that what you feel you lack in one regardyou may be more than compensated for in another.What you feel you lack in the presentmay become one of your strengths in the future.May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility.Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.
May you find enough inner strengthto determine your own worth by yourself,and not be dependenton another's judgment of your accomplishments.
May you always feel loved.
