"Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can - there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did." -Sarah Caldwell
She taught me many things, that sweet sister who best described our relationship as familyship...
Listen far more than you speak
Hear with your heart
Dream big dreams
What is frustrating in the moment may serve one well in the long haul
See everything in life as an opportunity
When you live your life as though everything is an opportunity, nothing becomes a true disappointment. I don't mean that disappointment does not occur...I just mean that it won't shatter you into a place that you cannot recover from. Ungluing happens. It is what we do when given the opportunity to be pieced back together that counts.
By seeing the beauty in the opportunities even the failed ones we come to see beauty in ourselves. In the broken. The messy. The mistakes and the triumphs alike....by seeing opportunity as a space where we can learn, we will never truly fail.
I am thankful for
It seems hard to fathom that it's only been twelve months. Twelve impossibly long-feeling months...Of knowing she was preparing to leave, letting her go and then striving to pick up the pieces of us she'd left behind. Throughout all of it, I've heard her strong voice...
See the blessing
Seek the beauty
Be gentle with yourself
Don't miss your moments
What she was saying? Really saying? She was reminding us that every moment is an opportunity.
Today I'm thankful for every single moment.
