Inspiring words

I was blog hopping tonight and came across this post from the amazing Donna Downey. I LOVED the poem she shared by Sandra Sturtz Hauss, and wanted to share it with you.

May you find serenity and tranquility

in a world you may not always understand.

May the pain you have known

and the conflict you have experienced

give you the strength to walk through life

facing each new situation with courage and optimism.

Always know that there are those

whose love and understanding will always be there,

even when you feel most alone.

May a kind word,

a reassuring touch,

and a warm smile

be yours every day of your life,­­

and may you give these gifts

as well as receive them.

May the teachings of those you admire

become part of you,

so that you may call upon them.

Remember, those whose lives you have touched

and who have touched yours

are always a part of you,

even if the encounters were less than you would have wished.

It is the content of the encounter

that is more important than its form.

May you not become too concerned with material matters,

but instead place immeasurable value

on the goodness in your heart.

Find time in each day to see beauty and love

in the world around you.

Realize that what you feel you lack in one regard

you may be more than compensated for in another.

What you feel you lack in the present

may become one of your strengths in the future.

May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility.

Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.

May you find enough inner strength

to determine your own worth by yourself,

and not be dependent

on another's judgment of your accomplishments.

May you always feel loved.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did :) Happy crafting!
