Permission To Do The Same

 A  L  O  H  A !

In  a forest of a hundred 

thousand trees, 

no two leaves are alike. 

And no two journeys 

along the same path 

are alike.     

Paulo Coelho

Never look directly 

at the sun. Instead, 

look at the sunflower.

Vera Nazarian

Crisis is what 

suppressed pain looks like; 

it always comes 

to the surface. 

It shakes you into 

reflection and healing.

Bryant McGill

Lord help me refrain 

from having an 

emotional reaction to 

things that have nothing 

to do with me.

As we let our own 

light shine, 

we unconsciously 

give other people 

permission to 

do the same.

Nelson Mandela


Love You,
                    Cloudia & Pixie

Thanks for this uplifting post. The picture of Pixie really made me smile. She looks like she can't believe what she's seeing. Is she being shaken into reflection on her misdeeds? Does she have any misdeeds to reflect upon???

Yes. But cruelty always has something to do with me - no matter who the victim is.
