Make the ordinary come alive…

Make the ordinary come alive…

 

Do not ask your children

to strive for extraordinary lives.

Such striving may seem admirable,

but it is a way of foolishness.

Help them instead to find the wonder

and the marvel of an ordinary life.

Show them the joy of tasting

tomatoes, apples, and pears.

Show them how to cry

when pets and people die.

Show them the infinite pleasure

in the touch of a hand.

And make the ordinary come alive for them,

The extraordinary will take care of itself.

~William Martin

Life is amazing…

Life is amazing…

 

Life is amazing

And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing

again.  And in between the mundane and routine.  Breathe

in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and

relax and exhale during the ordinary.  That’s

just living heartbreaking, soul-healing,

amazing, awful, ordinary life.  And

it’s breathtakingly beautiful.

~ L. R. Knost

Life can be so amazing one day,

and then unexplainably

hard the next.

 

There’s no absolute

guarantees

on any given day or night.

 

You may love someone

with all your heart

and they just walk away

like they don’t even know you.

 

But what you gonna do about it?

That’s life.

 

You might as well

make the best of it

and move on with pride.

 

Eventually love and life

will give you

another chance

and it will be

awesome again.

 

Awesome, and then mundane.

Routine, and then

heartbreaking.

 

Awesome again,

and as intense

as you can handle.

 

So just go with the flow

and do the best

you can to

HOLD ON

and ride the wave

to wherever it takes you!

 

Enjoy your life

and make it the best you can

every day.
