Two weeks into the challenge feels fantastic. I'm going to share a poem that I'd never heard of until today. I was chatting with my neighbour and friend over the phone, and she touched on the beauty of 'being present, and lessons learnt in life, now that she's almost 77 years old. She read out the poem, which has been stuck on her freezer for years. I loved it so much I had to find it online and share!
I am grateful for people like my neghbour, the kind of people who make me see life from a meanigful perspective. Growing up, I never knew that one of the people I'd call close friend would be older than my parents, and someone from another race. I'm so grateful that we found each other.
For the laughs, hope, encouragement, advice, wisdom, and dreaming big dreams, together; I am a thankful lady. She's one person I can ultimately be honest with, she's seen me cry before, and understands some of my dreams and fears. As old as she is, she is one person who keeps me young and inspires me to take better care of myself because when I get to her age, I definitely want to be as sharp and beautiful as she is.
I hope you too nurture such kind of relationships, for they can make you see how beautiful life can be when you journey along with like-minded souls.
I also hope you'll have moments where you can simply take time!
Take Time by Martin Greyford
Take time to think:
it is the source of power.
Take time to read;
it is the foundation of wisdom.
Take time to play;
it is the secret of staying young.
Take time to be quiet;
it is the opportunity to see God.
Take time to be aware;
it is the opportunity to help others.
Take time to love and be loved;
it is God's greatest gift.
Take time to laugh;
it is the music of the soul.
Take time to be friendly;
it is the road to happiness.
Take time to dream;
it is what the future is made of.
Take time to pray;
it is the greatest power on earth.
