As humans, we have a tendency to give up, and this is our greatest weakness. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. At the end of everyday, if we stop and look, we get the opportunity to take in one of the most beautiful sights that is most often too overlooked. Sunsets. Sunsets have always had sentimental meaning to me. Regardless of the obstacles life brings, sunsets bring me back to a place of peace and happiness. Throughout my life I had the opportunity to be taught and inspired by someone very special and dear to my heart. I was taught that not a day goes by that I don’t still need to remind myself that my life is not just what’s handed to me, nor is it my list of obligations, my accomplishments or failures, or what my family is up to, but rather it is what I choose, day in and day out, to make of it all. When I am able simply to be with things as they are, able to accept the day’s challenges without judging, reaching, or wishing for something else, I feel as if I am receiving the privilege, coming a step closer to being myself. It’s when I get lost in the day’s details, or so caught up in worries about what might be, that I miss the beauty of what is.
Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. ~Bradley Whitford
..may the next few months be a period of magnificent transformation.
