In the Way of Beauty
“There’s always a sunrise and always a sunset and it’s up to you to choose to be there for it,’ said my mother. ‘Put yourself in the way of beauty.”― Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
May you be hit by beauty, stopped in your tracks, held in awe.
In all seasons, life brimming, brewing, unfolding.
Stillness in winter, preparing for spring awakening, paving the way for summer confetti, followed by autumn fire.
All colliding, dancing, merging together into the fabric and flow.
Put yourself in the way of beauty.
“The work of embodiment begins with being present. It’s important to note that the word responsibility at its root means “our ability to respond.” So, living an embodied life begins with our vow to stay present and to respond to life in all its forms.”— Mark Nepo, Surviving Storms: Finding the Strength to Meet Adversity
