Soften

“So often we try to gird ourselves to face a harsh and difficult world when we might instead gentle both ourselves and our world by slowing down.” – Julia Cameron, Walking in this World

Walk softly through this day and observe. You can be a gift to someone who may be having a really tough day. Don’t race by. Go deeper instead of farther. A smile, a laugh, a hug, a helping hand, your full attention – all simple acts that can transform your corner of the world. This race is won by the slow.

  4. Great quote/wisdom. And, I love your two dogs. I had a Golden mix and American eskimo (derived from Samoyed) Both have “moved on” now, both were rescues.

    • Wonderful breeds. I am also partial to German Shepherds – I’ve had two of them through the years.
