To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on April 6, 2014 in Picture Quotes
“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”
— Louise Erdrich

    To live life is to do what you are here for, so living to the full&experiencing all the wonders life has to offer is the very best of intent.

    Thank you for this quote. This is so true of life and it reminds me to” smell the roses, live in the moment, learn from the past and look forward to the future.

    I look forward to today and to this seminar that I am attending: ” Living without Fear”

    Good day to all
