Life is thickly sewn with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.


Good morning and welcome to this precious gift of a day. This tiny, bright heart appeared, just as I exited my car a little while ago. I was in the middle of a thought and I looked down to witness this simple reminder. I always do my best to observe, listen, pay attention and be present. I truly look for the good and I stand firmly for peace.

It is necessary, for me, to possess mental toughness in this life. We must be willing to put in the work in order to defy the odds set against us. What harms us and robs us of our peace, is only what we allow to do so. We have the power and capability to master our own minds and our own thoughts.

As the quote above states, the thorns will present themselves and persist. The questions are; will we recognize the intrusions, and will we allow the forces of negativity to swiftly pass through as we proceed onward? It is up to us.

These little hearts I encounter in a day serve as not only reminders of the love surrounding me, but they serve as poignant testimonies to the truth I believe in and trust, and the love and gratitude I choose to embrace and share. May we continue, as we step into this day and the next, to armor our minds with strength, will, and HEART.

Be the Warrior.
