This delightful photograph, with the accompanying quote by Ralph Smart, was posted on Facebook yesterday, by ‘Earthschool harmony‘.
For me the last year has been particularly challenging and I’ve been dealing with several life~changing events, one on top of the other. Coping with the unusual stresses that 2013 threw across my path consumed my attention, diminishing my natural joie de vivre. For a while fear and uncertainty meant that I didn’t dare dream or plan.
Yet, even in the midst of the maelstrom, it felt like a clearing process and I’ve drawn heavily on past experience to make my way through. Now ~ older and wiser, with the future looking much brighter ~ I’m ready to reclaim my life.
So, when I spotted this uplifting post I had to share it ~ first on Facebook and now as my Nurturing Thursday contribution this week. Who could fail to be gladdened by the joy and exhilaration on the faces of these beautiful young girls?
