I love to laugh! Who doesn’t, right? The sooner you can find the funny side of things the easier it will be to deal with. Besides, it’s good exercise!

What makes you feel comforted after a long day? Here’s a starter list of comforting things you could do on days that have kicked your tail.

A soft, purring cat.
A warm hug from a friend.
A hot shower.
Walking barefoot in the grass.
A wagging tail from your furry friend.
A soft sofa or chair.
Holding a warm cup of tea, coffee, or chocolate.
Putting on fleece leggings (so comfy!).

There’s beauty everywhere and sometimes you don’t even see it. I’m intrigued by tiny flowers that practically no one has ever seen even though they are blooming beneath their feet. It reminds me to slow down and actually look at what’s around me.

Some days make you sweat.  Some days make you bleed.  If you know what you are sweating and bleeding for, it will be worth it.

Life can still thrive even in the toughest conditions. Sometimes I think life chooses a rock and hard place just to show that it is stronger still.
Some quotes going through my head on this one:

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
“Life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

I’ve discovered that feelings of gray emptiness and boredom can lead to creative action with colorful results. While we all love to be at the peak you can only get there by going through the valleys. It’s called life, my dears.

Clarity can be achieved by blocking out all distractions and extraneous information. I really admire people who can do this almost effortlessly. Or perhaps it just looks effortless when looking at it from the outside?

This is our cat, Minnie, when she was a kitten. Don’t let her innocent pose fool you. She was a terror as a kitten! But I love her dearly. Thank goodness they grow out of a lot of the crazies!

Photo – Dawning After a Storm II

Erika Swafford Sunrise/Sunset 0 Comments

Have you ever noticed that there is a surreal space of time between when a storm ends and when the normal pattern of life begins again? Sometimes it is a window of beauty where colors are more pronounced and people are more kind-hearted. Other times it is when we lick our wounds and rebuild what was lost. That surreal space in time heals.

In order to grow into a mighty Oak or colorful Maple, one has to start as a small seedling, weathering the storms, and leaning on neighboring trees for support.
