Awe | Respect | Sadness
“By having a reverence for life, we enter into a spiritual relation with the world. By practicing reverence for life we become good, deep, and alive.” Albert Schweitzer
I might not fully understand the believes of this Indian woman, but contemplating this picture stirs respect for them. Watching the tenderness of her touch to the dead elephant and the offer of flowers she showered on her makes me experience sadness for the lost of a life.
“Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.” Dale E. Turner
Keeping the audacity to dream even when the reality shouts the contrary is what hope is all about.
Gratefulness | Nostalgy
“You never know when you’re making a memory.” Rickie Lee Jones
My best memories include laughs. I have been blessed because I have always been surrounded by people with whom I laugh. Family, friends, co-workers, classmates, nieces and nephews. Simple moments become treasured memories that hold us during tough times.
Happiness | Gratefulness
“When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky” Buddha
Laughing is the outer expression of inner joy. When I feel down, I love to look at smiling faces because they makes me smile back. There is nothing more contagious than a good laugh.

“Security can only be achieved through constant change.” William Osler
