Let Yourself Feel

“Many of us spend our whole lives running from feeling with the mistaken belief that you cannot bear the pain.  But you have already borne the pain.  What you have not done is feel all that you are beyond that pain.” – Bartholomew

The Rhododendron Blooms

Don’t be afraid to let yourself feel.

Feel love, give love, and accept love, when you have the opportunity.  Don’t let the special moments pass you by because of a fear of emotional pain.  You will gain much more than you will lose.

Wordless Wednesday

Ok, so, the title doesn’t really go with tonight’s post because I am typing a few words.  I have to give credit where credit is due.  Mike, a fellow blogger uses this title on Wednesdays and I found it to be a fabulous idea for those days when I want to post an image, but just don’t have time to write or search for the perfect quote.  So, with that said, I will give you the url for Mike’s blog.  He can be found at:  Tau Zero –   http://tau0.wordpress.com/author/tau0/.  I hope you appreciate his photographs of mountains as much as I do.  His images remind my husband and I of where my husband grew up in Northern Idaho near the Canadian border, and very close to Montana.  Some of Mike’s images are of places we’ve actually visited and they bring back fond memories.

Maybe next Wednesday really will be a “wordless” Wednesday!  Until then….
