Tuesday Truth #72

Tuesday Truth.

Number 72.

I love this quote.

Such a simple reminder about the journeys we take in life.

Sometimes we are no longer where we were and also not yet where we want to be.

We should honor that space.

If you’ve followed my truths, you are already aware that my current journey has battered my soul, brought me to my knees, and taught me to dig deep for every thread of resilience.

I finally feel like I’m in that space of no longer and not yet.

A place where I can begin to breathe.

To pause.

To reflect.

To move forward again.

If you find yourself in that space of no longer and not yet, I hope you are able to pause.

Breathe in the sunshine…the rain…

Let the trees and the flowers speak softly to your soul.

Find those glimpses of beauty in the chaos.

Tuck them away.

Cherish them.

And move forward.

I’m currently down in Florida visiting my family. While the photo in the quote isn’t from this trip, that is the view that soothes my soul on the days when my mom and I visit the beach.

Beauty is everywhere.

Find your moments.

Wishing you all a spectacular week.

Let your light shine!

Amy

  1. An awesome ‘truth’ Amy and a great reminder for those of us who spend a great deal of time and energy worrying. Love your phrase “…honor that space.” You also remind me about returning to ‘breath.’ Thank you for continuing to shine your light, Amy, especially when darkness appears. Hope you are okay. Your thoughts and posts always make a difference. ❤️

  2. Thank you so much for your posts – I have been following for at least two years now and am always inspired by your shares. I have a 21 year old daughter, a 18 year old son about to leave for college this week, a 16 year old son and new driver and my youngest daughter almost 14 and will be going into high school in August. I have not read your posts in long while even though I get the emails – just a tough year I suppose and not feeling inspired. I just caught up on your blogs and this year’s Tuesday Truths. This quote just resonates so deeply with how this time of life is for me – all of what you write I have felt and feel so thank you for being able to share all that you do. It always helps. I wanted to start the book list you had put out last year yet never did – It is still on my list to do – I had a yoga colleague who did the word of the year with her family and it is always inspiring yet I always seem to never find that perfect word… It is usually a few to ponder on… I lost my mom 12 years ago in June to cancer and her mom passed only 2 years before her – my husbands father passed 3 months before my mom – it is never easy to lose and miss someone that is so close to us. I am sorry to hear about your Mother in law and hope your mom is doing well with her MS treatments. I would like to try the Artists Way as I need a shift – this last year was so challenging and I am looking for inspiration of the whats next yet not knowing what that will be… what will spark my creativity…so for now I shall “honor the space” Your quote from Albert Schweitzer is very true – “at times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person…”. Thank you and yes be the light – In Gratitude, Laura

    1. Thank you for comment, Laura. I completely understand about the past year being tough and the disappearance of inspiration. It sounds like a busy, transitional time in your home!
      I’m sorry for your losses. Time does have a way of healing, but the scar left in losing someone can at times become tender, bringing back those feelings of grief.
      My mother is doing well on her MS medications although there are still some bad days. Thank you for asking.
      I really enjoyed the Artist’s Way. Then life came in and swept my creativity back into the corners. I feel like I’m getting close to being able to dust away the cobwebs and seek it out again. I hope you find that inspiration…that spark…for your creativity. Sending you many thanks and a bright, shining light! -Amy <3

    1. Thanks so much, Deborah! I had a fabulous time visiting my family and then returned to head off to the Eastern Regional President’s Cup Soccer Tournament with Miss Sunshine. It was an exciting 4 days. They made it to the final four and sadly lost a hard fought game in the final minutes!
