Shapes

I cannot get the shape to fit, what am I doing wrong?

I press and push to no avail, it will not yield my touch.

Ponder, question, wonder why, how to bend the form to will?

It is not the shapes, my child, that need to change

They are set in shape and stone.

Take what you have, the clay and sand – and work the world around

Thoughts and hearts, minds and cares, and see the change abound.

One small piece, one at a time, build on solid ground.

And then one day, you will see, you will find –

The shapes all fit and beauty has been

Found.

Inspiration 

For pure unadulterated inspiration, we need look no further than the Williams sisters and their dad. When (age 11) Serena was asked, if she was to become a tennis player who would she like to be like? She answered without skipping a beat, well, I’d like others to be like me. 

And in 2017, we have both Williams sisters in the Australian Open, well done Venus and Serena, and well done Serena on 23 Grand Slam titles.

Good on Dad for stating way back then, we will  one day see them in the finals.

Daily Inspirations by Erika Kind

On Saturday I received my much-anticipated 101 Kind Quotes  physical copy created by my dear friend Erika Kind from I’m Free. First up, I want to say how wonderful it is to be able to hold it in my hands and to browse through it freely. Each quote is set on an accompanying image and has Erika’s trademark butterfly presented on it. So much to inspire. And much about love. My favorites are those revolving around love “Love is the cause, the key, and the result. Love is all that is“. There are 101 quotes, so perfect for choosing one daily at random,  or to read in one sitting. I am really glad and thankful for this beautiful book, and for all the love that has gone into creating it.

Thank you Erika, for your wonderful community presence, and for all that you do for us. We love and appreciate you! ❤
