Life is Amazing

Life is amazing:

Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living –  heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful. 
L.R. Knost

I have no idea who L.R. Knost is but someone sent me this quote awhile back and I like it alot.


Note 1:) For those of you who have an artistic bent and for those of you who might like to cultivate the same I  suggest an excellent blog to follow. It is called Painters Keys and has been around since 1998.  Well known landscape artist Robert Genn started these “letters,” and when he died his daughter Sara, also an artist and musician continued his work. It is about the creative life and if you are an artist you will find a wealth of information.

However, I am not an artist, and I read this blog regularly and am often inspired and moved by the commentaries on life and the three or so quotes at the end of each posting. I planned to give you the link before now, and this recent post prompted me to do so as I know there are some artists who read my blog.  I suggest you read the “About” page on the website should you take a peak, as Painters Keys has an interesting history. It is also a free site.

Here is the link to the post I recently enjoyed. It is called M.E.L.T.

Note 2:) Are you getting outdoors? I had a beautiful walk with a friend, today, on the Rideau Canal 7.8 KM Skateway. We walked carefully along the side of the skateway and basked in the blue sky, sunshine, and the many skaters enjoying this beautiful and well maintained UNESCO World Heritage Site. And right in our backyard. Once again, being outdoors, when possible, cannot be matched for its common side effects of hope, joy, clarity and goodwill. I hope you get to experience many days of sunshine in the great outdoors.

Note 3:) I so appreciate and enjoy your company and good wishes. Thank you! Thank you! See you next week. Warmly, Trudy

    Yes, this is a great quote. It reminds me to not get stuck in wishing it were different when it’s awful and holding on too tightly when it’s amazing, just knowing it will change 🙂
    Thanks for this Trudy
