Words of comfort, encouragement and wisdom
To all the beautiful people 🌞
Words placed in a particular order can have a profound effect on us.
Words can bring us a moment of comfort, give us a different perspective, or change the course of our thinking and outlook entirely.
I would like this to be a space where we share quotes that have meaning to us or that have the potential to bring some comfort or encouragement to somebody, even if just for the moment in which they are reading it.
I will start.
Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." - Mary Anne Radmacher
Go gently with yourselves lovely people.
Thank you for bringing my attention to this thread... such beautiful words that warm my heart.
My little offering, which is just a mantra that I repeat to myself often, no famous poets, just my words:
My life is unfolding exactly as it should
I am exactly where I am meant to be
Through the darkness will come the light
Where I will truly love me for me
Thank you so much for that lovely meditation 🐝PamelaR, i sat with the dawn in solitude this morning, and i felt refreshed and peaceful.
So great to have you here FL 😊, thank you for sharing your uplifting mantra, powerful words to encourage acceptance of your wonderful self.
When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks, and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness.
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”
excerpt from When I am among the trees by Mary Oliver
Let your light shine lovely people.
Love your - no mud, no lotus. Can relate to that.
Your offering from Mary Oliver is beautiful. When I walk through the bush, I feel like the trees talk to you too. The rays of sunshine filtering through bring life to all that bounds in forests.
My words for today come of Hope is a Thing With Feathers by Emily Dickinson
Hope is a thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
Hi Music Freak
Big virtual hugs to you. My heart goes out to you. You seem in some awful pain.
How about we move over to your thread? We can talk there. Have a think about - what is causing you to think there is something wrong with you; what is it that's wrong with you and let me know on your thread.
