Gratitude 365

I’m thankful everyday for the people that make my life meaningful, for beauty in all forms on this Earth, for inspiration, for compassion, for smiles that come from the soul, for the opportunity to always learn and grow, for touch, for sight, for hearing, for smell, for taste, for shelter, for clothes, for food, for water, and for a measure of inner peace. – Allison LaBine

“Twice as beautiful is the experience when two hearts forged in the fires of different lives perceive the same thing and a shared smile escapes, removing all barriers from that moment.” – Allison LaBine

Our Thoughts

Posted in Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 21, 2012 by allisonlabine

We are ultimately defined by our choices, but our thoughts guide us to the choices we do make. Think on the life you want to live, the person you want to be – all you already do have.

 

Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words.

Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions.

Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits.

Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character.

Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny.

No I or you

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” – Pablo Neruda
