Author Unknown -- Message received loud and clear

Know that feeling when you read something and your heart stops and then leaps a beat and you feel light and giddy and absolutely grounded all in one breath?

This quote, by someone 'unknown', did that for me this morning. I read it and I felt myself get cold and warm and light and giddy all in one heartbeat.
"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." -- Unknown
The author may be 'unknown', but they sure do know life and living. As I read their words my being felt infused with light, lighter than light, lightness becoming light. YES! my mind called out and my spirit rushed in to greet its welcoming embrace.

And now, I must run. I've an early meeting and a busy day ahead.

Have a beautiful day living it up for all you're worth!

I was meant to read this post this morning. I need to distance myself from some people that take the joy out of my life. The sad part is I don't think they are even aware...

'UNKNOWN' simply means we've forgotten who said it, because who said it matters far less than THAT it was said

and today, it was said by you

you are KNOWN

and now you KNOW

time to think about leaping off the cliff to take what is KNOWN on a flight to the great UNKNOWN

you will flourish, fly and be fantastic

Freeing myself of the negative (I made a vow several years ago to not allow it into my life) is the best thing imaginable. There's too much beauty and, I would even say, goodness in the world to let the ugliness determine how the day goes.

Have a splendid weekend. We're apt to be waterlogged and wind-swept by the hurricane but I'm thinking about how much reading I'll get done.

either surround yourself with people that make you laugh, or just laugh anyway.
