elizabeth lesser wisely notes, "how strange that the nature of life is change, yet the nature of human beings is to resist change. and how ironic that the difficult times we fear might ruin us are the very ones that can break us open and help us blossom into who we were meant to be."

ps: as if to demonstrate this ever-changing life, our crab-apple tree, amid summer’s abundance, dropped a few leaves, which broke open and blossomed in a puddle.

life invites us—perhaps requires us—to hold and feel opposites simultaneously: joy and grief; courage and gentleness; love and fear. life isn’t just one way. it’s many things all at once: complicated, rich, heartbreaking, and beautiful.

wisdom from thomas merton: "what can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? this is the most important of all voyages of discovery."

the ordinary moments in our lives can bring us surprising joy and satisfaction. there's beauty in little things: a smile, act of kindness, or moment of grace. when i look for it, i see goodness all around me. i also see it inside me and inside each of you: goodness that is ordinary, imperfect, and beautiful.

beauty need not be grand. it can be as simple as one stem of clover illuminated by early-morning sun. if we wait for grandeur, excitement, or bliss, life passes us by. there’s beauty in everyday things. there’s joy in a simple smile. there’s kindness in small actions. there’s peace in the stillness.

each day i remind myself: slow down, pay attention, and be kind. be present for this one precious life.
