So many of these beautiful creatures have presented themselves to me over the last year.. yet to determine what they mean or what they are trying to tell me. The ones that come in the day are especially special 🍃#moth#spiritanimal
Being honest and frank with people in awful situations is tough. How do you respond to someone who's in the midst of a terrible, no good, bloody horrific time? I think.. Just be there. Be honest. Feel their pain. Grieve with them. Just listen. You can't fix it.. but you can lessen the load by listening. You can lessen the load by showing you genuinely care, showing your love. Don't say the expected things. People don't want to hear that. That doesn't show your love. Just be honest, hug and cry, say what you feel. They'll appreciate it. Appreciate them. Appreciate your life. In the midst of your pain, you found someone worse off. People are good at doing that. And that has been your strength and mine. What's worse than someone with facial bone cancer? Someone who's had to have their tongue cut out from worse cancer. There's always someone worse off. Let them make you grateful multiple times each day.. on the days that you feel like falling apart. You are okay. You are okay. #fuckcancer#youareokay#thankful#gratitude#mindset
And when I breathe in – with my eyes closed
Oh I swear I can see you there
But you’re not here
I want you here
My mind has vacated
I feel little bits and bouts of fucking crazy
I ride a wave until the shore breaks- And daylight – saves me.
My bed is empty like the bottles on it’s side
My body lays restless
While I feel it set alight #grettastanley#lifethoughts#ebbandflow#fifo
“I had to abandon the idea of the superordinate position of the ego...
I saw that everything, all paths I had been following, all steps I had taken, were leading back to a single point — namely, to the mid-point. It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the centre. It is the exponent of all paths... I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self I had attained what was for me the ultimate.” #cgjung#selfidentity#mandala#barcelona#parkguell#gaudi#ebbandflow#lifethoughts
I was woken up early today by an epic storm.. at 4am.. on my birthday. Can't help but read into that.. on your birthday you can't help but reflect on the past year you've lived. And now that I think about it, that's what mine has been, a storm. And now that it's dawn, the storm has died down and the sun is fighting her way through the clouds.. and she's doing it. On her own. Pushing through with her unrelenting hope. The universe works in mysterious ways.. I got the message.. thank you for sending it ✨
