A post to end 2015: click

I came upon this wonderful quote today, and it made me think of all the people — new acquaintances and old friends — who have truly touched my life through their presence, spirit, conversation, laughter, support, ideas, shoulders or ears (to lean on or listen), unconditional love or what have you:

Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level, belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another, or you’re in love, or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. (Source unknown)

To all of you who truly “click” with me and make me feel alive, thank you. I am blessed to have you in my life and to call you my friends.

Give the gift of your gratitude

Thought of the moment, courtesy of writer William Arthur Ward:

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

How many times have you been helped, supported or touched by someone and neglected to say thank you? Your gratitude truly is a gift to give. It may seem small, but it can have enormous impact. Give it freely, and watch how it brightens the world around you.

She’s imperfect, but she tries

I love these lyrics from the song “Used to be Mine” by Sara Bareilles. Beautiful and touching. Sounds like so many women I know, myself included.

She’s imperfect, but she tries.
She is good, but she lies.
She is hard on herself;
She is broken and won’t ask for help.
She is messy, but she’s kind.
She is lonely, most of the time.
She is all of this mixed up
And baked in a beautiful pie.
She is gone but she used to be mine.
