Life is interconnected and so are the topics on this blog. It might be cooking and gardening one day, yoga the next, knitting and sewing, or hiking and then bird watching followed by recycling or composting. They are the parts that bring humble joy to my life of voluntary simplicity in Montana.

It is Never Too Late - Inspiration Thursday
Stop feeding you mind thoughts about the past. Forgive those who have done you wrong. And forgive yourself, too. Start seeding thoughts and actions which lead to a happier tomorrow. -Karen Salmansohn
Our thoughts are so powerful. SO, so powerful. I wish every human being knew that. We can build ourselves up and tear ourselves down. We can transform our world and ourselves. Our thoughts become our actions which shape the patterns of our lives. This is not to say that positive thinking is all we need to get by and achieve our dreams, but there comes a point where letting go of the past is the only way to fully move forward into the beautiful present. To live and be free! Holding grudges--including against our own selves--doesn't allow for personal growth and inward transformations which we need to make this world a kinder, better, richer, more beautiful place. Grudges lock us up from achieving our full potential. Grudges keep us mired in the past in a drama we'd be better served to leave behind as a lesson learned. It is not easy. I know that first-hand. Each stumbling block, however, is a chance to learn, to grow, and to try again to be the person you want to be. It is never too late to be that person. It is never too late.
