If I’ve learned anything from life, it’s that sometimes, the darkest times can bring us to the brightest places. I’ve learned that the most toxic people can teach us the most important lessons; that our most painful struggles can grant us the most necessary growth . . . And I’ve learned that no matter how powerless we feel or how horrible things seem, we can’t give up. We have to keep going. . . We can make it through whatever comes next. ~ Daniell Keopke by millie

Yamas are instructions for living well... instead of being strict rules, they invite us to decide for ourselves the specific applications to how we live. “Ahimsa” is an important consideration when we examine our habits in relationship to other people. We want to cultivate compassion and love for when we interact with others. But further, we want to think about the impacts that our words, actions, and purchases have on other beings. #ahimsa #yoga #yamas #nonviolence by Eggnog

West End Tiny House by Tiny in a Box Makes the Most of its Small Space - The model includes a full service bathroom, and one that’s bigger than some I’ve seen in regular houses, as well as an open kitchen and living room area, a large bedroom, and a lot of windows to let that natural light in and create the illusion of a much larger space. Here’s a great shot of the exterior. Note how big it looks from the outside. You’ll really be surprised when you go inside! by liza

When we are arrogant enough to try to force the world should live the way that we believe, we make enemies. We don't want anyone to come into our country and do that to us and, if they did, we would want to destroy them. We need to stop giving people from other nations a reason to want to destroy us. by agnes

Using Mod Podge, a glue gun and white glue, we began to apply layers of papers and trims to our bottles. We continued to apply buttons, charms and other dimensional objects (even porcelain poodles!) until our bottles seemed to be complete. We marveled at how quickly they all came together… the bottles you see here were created in just one very magical day. When our bottles were finished, we filled some with “fairy dust”, (a combination of clear glitters and sand), beads, interesting old buttons or paper flowers. Some of us tucked little messages inside, curling up a little piece of paper and tying thin silver cording ‘round it. by kendra

“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. We had no locks, therefore there were no thieves. When someone was so poor he couldn’t afford a horse, tent or blanket, he would receive it all as a gift. We were in bad shape before white men arrived. I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for civilized society” - John (Fire) Lame Deer, Sioux Lakota, 1903-1976 by pam

There is no plan for life, no map for living. No one can lead you by the hand, say for sure where you should turn. We want to believe there is a path that must be chosen wisely, though wisdom is only something that we learn from looking back on our choices. Most of all we yearn to be happy. If you do what you feel when you feel it the present comes into focus and life takes care of itself.KB by agnes
