The silence within yourself

Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has its purpose.  There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.

– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

    No comments? That’s shocking. Everyone is too busy bustling around for the holidays! I adore this passage, and it is timely always – but especially during this season – when I have to remind myself daily to acknowledge and give gratitude for my multitude of blessings! Thank you!

    I love this, Lindsey. I need to go back and read more of her words… thanks for the reminder.

    Love these words and ties in perfectly with what something I’ve been thinking and writing about lately, how the stories of our own lives as Joseph Campbell said, really are mythologies of their own. They are markers for us on our own heros journey.
