Then there are miracles of human kindness and the resilience of every species. There's a place called the Catskill Animal Sanctuary an awesome place where they rescue abused and sick animals. A friend sent this essay to me today. I hope you'll read it. It will make you smile.
The human spirit, the animal spirit are awesome things. That we rise above our wounds is a testament to what we are capable of and yet very few of us recognize ourselves for the miraculous and beautiful souls that we are. We don't let ourselves fly. And we are ashamed (I'm projecting my own wounds here) of our desire to do so and afraid of it as well.
You are awesome. I am awesome. Every soul on this earth is awesome (even the ones we can't stand). If we could find it in ourselves to look at everyone and everything with the eyes of love - with attention to how amazing the world around us really is - I think we'd take better care of ourselves and our environment.
Not sure I'm making sense tonight. I'm writing this very late.
Some things I'm grateful for today:
- clean laundry
- truth tellers
