“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.” – Diane Ackerman
Like a window open for the first time as winter comes to a close, we can open up to fresh breezes of clarity and warm sunshine of hope. It’s never too late and we’re never too old to learn, discover, transform, to become new.
Our days are often about speed, velocity and distance. When we quietly and slowly go deeper and reach wider, our world expands to new dimensions and possibilities right where we are, no need to travel afar. As the fresh air comes in the window, the weight of the past and the burden of others defining us can drift out the window too. Our story is still being written and it need not be based on history.
Open the window wide, releasing the old to make room for the new.
It’s like you read my mind… your words are always very timely.
Thanks for taking time to share. Breathe in the day.
Kathie, wonderful words of inspiration from that always-inspiring seasonal moment when we fling open the windows as spring approaches or on one of those unseasonably warm winter days.
Thank you – nothing better than fresh air to renew us. Fling open wide!

Well said! Thank you for a beautiful post.
Thanks for the kind comments. Seize the day and each moment in it.
I just love your blog. It always lifts me up.
Thank you. I enjoy visiting yours and others as well. A lot of joy to be found if we take another glance.
Deeper and wider…I love it.
Thanks – beneath the surface is a beautiful world if we risk the dive.
Yes..or drifting into it… 🙂
Drifting is good too. We need to put the map down once in a while and merely wander.
