heart matters

2d7284be6e45b933250c9a6bd9275d52

be kind

hold the door for someone

compliment them on their tie or their shirt

ask them how their morning has been

laugh at their jokes (even if they are not funny)

offer to make them a cup of tea

show them you care

that they matter

we all have a heart

so let’s not hide it

find wonderful

find wonderful

In the comfort of warm cup of coffee

the homeliness of freshly baked cookies

receiving a handwritten letter

wearing a vintage dress on a Sunday morning

picking fresh flowers from your garden

find wonderful

in the simplest of things

in the simplest of ways

everyday

find wonderful

just saying

stop saying
I wish

start saying
I will

and it becomes
I am

let’s

let’s start loving who we are

and

stop hating what we are not

more or less

less past

more now

less doing

more being

sometimes

sometimes, in life you meet a wonderful person

but it’s only for a brief moment

maybe you’re on holidays

or on a train

or waiting in a queue

and they touch your life ever so briefly, but in a special way

instead of mourning because they can’t be with you for longer

or you don’t get the chance to know them better

isn’t it better to be happy that you met them at all

 

5 things

before I get out of each morning, I:

say thank you

say I love you (to myself and the world at large)

set my intentions for the day

smile (for no reason at all)

stretch and open myself to everyone and everything I will encounter that day

what do you do before you get out of bed

sweet surrender

i think we should give up

the idea

that we know what we’re doing

where we’re heading

what our lives should look like

how our life will turn out

and just

surrender

to the uncertainty

the surprises

the unknowing

surrender to life

and go where it takes us

maybe that’s why they call it

sweet surrender

 

masterpiece

your life is your masterpiece

edit it

as often as you need to

as ruthlessly you as must

curate it

make it as beautiful as possible

and never let anyone tell you differently

tuesday

you have to be the kind of person who can make the best out of a Tuesday

you know those people who live for the weekends?

they’re wishing their life away

you have to find something worth living for or else you’ll look back and realize you’ve wasted your life away
