Something to Remember…

one moment of joy

One moment of joy can be like a shield against the world and all the hardships and adversity that seem all too common these days. That moment can sooth the soul and replenish the heart if we let it.

In the end it is our choice if we let it. Do we let go of the anger and hatred and negativity? Or do we cling to them and cloud our hearts so that we cannot see that single moment that could offer us a safe harbor?

The world may be harsh.

But we choose how we respond and what we keep in our hearts.

Thought for the day

hope

 

Fear can never be overcome by anger. It must be overwhelmed by hope.

visual inspirations

Some visually stimulating things. I especially like the one about the buildings . . . makes me wish I was writing some kind of future dystopian fiction because these would be perfect settings. The other is some art I just really liked. Art helps me write . . .it’s like fuel for thoughts.
