Life

Let me but live my life from year to year,

With forward face and unreluctant soul;

Not hurrying to, nor turning from the goal;

Not mourning for the things that disappear

In the dim past, nor holding back in fear

From what the future veils; but with a whole

And happy heart, that pays its toll

To Youth and Age, and travels on with cheer.

 

So let the way wind up the hill or down,

O’er rough or smooth, the journey will be joy:

Still seeking what I sought when but a boy,

New friendship, high adventure, and a crown,

My heart will keep the courage of the quest,

And hope the road’s last turn will be the best. ~ Emily Dickinson

“I used to extinguish under the weight of living. But one day I reached into my chest, dusted off my courage and asked myself, WHERE’S YOUR FIRE?”                     ~ D. Antoinette Foy

“Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing. Hold on through the awful. And relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking. soul-healing. amazing. awful. ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful. ~ L.R. Knost
