The Gift of Life Writings and Photographs

The Gift of Life
Writings and Photographs

    I recently went over this book re-reading it. It put a big smile on my face. I published it around 2012. However, the writings go back to 2008, a beautiful time where I began my journey of re-discovery of who I truly am. The time I began to write. How fun it was to dive into these little gems I had written. I will not change it, I will leave it as is for I love what I was and now am, it is a piece of my adventure on this planet.

The Gift of Life

The purpose of these writings and photos is to remind us of the beauty that surrounds us, they are simply about life. Our current world seems to be fixated on the negative and has the undertone of fear, which makes us forget to look at the beauty that life has to offer us. The writings in this book came from pure inspiration; I always had a pen and paper handy to write. No matter where I was I would stop and let the process happen. This is my love of life coming forth. I hope these words and images bring you a sense of joy, happiness, and calmness into your life and help us remember that no matter what challenges we are facing in life there is always beauty.  We are all learning and the best teachers and guides are we ourselves. We all have something special to share with the world. This is purely my way of expressing myself, just as you are capable to do in any form you wish. Remember we do not have to do grand things to make a difference in this world. Being our true unique self is the best gift we can offer the world. Live life with an open heart. I will allow these writings and photos to speak for themselves and journey you wherever you wish.

The Present

 

Good morning!

Goodnight!

Moments and days fly by…

As if a flashing shooting star in the night sky.

Planning for our future,

Always jumping ahead....

Never, focusing on that which truly holds value.....

The present.

Individuals phrase this often....

Do we acknowledge its true meaning?

Do we cherish the present moment?

Are we truly being?

Letting go of thoughtless thoughts, woes, plans, schedules.......

Are we in the moment appreciating life to its fullest?

Any task we may dwell upon, even if it may be the simplest,

Like hanging the clothes, talking, bathing, walking, day-dreaming, swimming...

Telling a joke, embracing another being...

Dancing, eating, singing,

Breathing.......

Everything is full of life!

Being here in full body and being,

Nothing else matters......

All thoughts dissipate......

Everything melts...........

Taken by the breeze.......

All becomes joyful!

Floating with gratitude......

Excitement tingles our skin with vibrancy!

Gifted with all its senses,

Able to experience so many…

 Elements, sensations,  & feelings.

Let go of the past, the future,

Jump for joy!

STOP EVERYTHING!

Live, be…

Immerse yourself with the gift of life.
