Thoughts And A Quote

You can say that I am crazy for quotes. In them, I find nuggets of inspiration and wisdom, unvarnished by the negativity and distorted thinking that life can bring. They are gentle reminders of truths that lay dormant in our hearts. A good quote can instantly connect us to that place within us, where there is no fear or doubt–only hope, faith and the certainty that all is as it should be and all will be well.

As I read the following quote, I felt a familiarity and a deep inner knowing.

“You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful–or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.” ~ Unknown

After reading it, I thought, “Yes, the passage of time is the safe harbor that shelters us and safely holds each of those seemingly inexplicable moments, until it is ready to reveal to us, the answers that we’ve longed to hear.” Only then, can we appreciate the full import of our journey, and like the butterfly, our lives be transformed as we were intended to live. Moreover, even though we might not realize it, there is a reason for most of what we encounter on our journey.

On this Friday, may your weekend be either a time of rest or relaxation or a time to enjoy your time with friends, hiking or other activities that the work week does not allow Whatever you do, be safe.

    • Sweet Allison, Is Glory Begin a new blog or in addition to Long
      And Luxe. I like it.

      I am glad that you like the post, just a shortie on my thoughts. Blessings and xo, Lydia

      • Hi Lydia,

        Thanks so much! I am looking to move over completely to Glory Begin over the next month. All my newest content will be there. It’s a self hosted site though so I’m trying to make sure I stay connected with WordPress folks! 🙂

        Much love and gratitude for coming on over!!! 🙂 I really appreciate it so very much.

        XO Allison

      • Wow, self-hosted! I know that I don’t have the tech ability to self-host, so I’m proud of you. In any case, I’ll follow you anywhere. 🙂 Good luck with the new blog–not that you’ll need it. Blessings and Namasté, Lydia

      • Lydia, You are such an angel! I have a tech programmer coaching me through the process with the new site – he’s an angel too! You may like to follow him, he’s also a writer and has a lovely podcast that combines opening up as a writer as well as a spiritually connected being. His name is Tim Pike at Dream! Play! Write! 🙂 I freaking LOVE this community don’t you?!

        So very, very grateful to you for your well wishes, more than I could ever say. XO

      • Great! Thank you for the recommendation! If you like him, I am sure that I will too, and I will look him up and follow him. I can’t wait to see what you do with the new blog. I know that it will be AMAZING! And, yes, I love this community also. I marvel that it is comprised of people that we may never meet, but can learn more about than those who we are with every day. To me, that is so incredible. Blessings and love, lydia
