  • I read this recently and it really spoke to me...

It is important to fall in love again. Somewhere each day we must fall in love with some

one, some thing, some moment, event or phrase. Somehow we must break free from the noise and allow for the softening of the heart. Otherwise our hearts will move inevitably toward cynicism, bitterness, fear and despair..

If we don’t pause, the hardships of the world will slowly de-sensitize us from the simple joys that life has to offer.

Stop and take a breath.

Enjoy the moment without needing the moment to be perfect. Life is what happens between the cracks of perfection.

It is a discipline to consciously simplify and re-discover those moments of falling in love again.

and again.
