Perhaps

Perhaps

Believe it or not, I’ve missed most of the happenings in the world this past week.
I decided I’d rather have the tv off,  I chose to stay away from the chatter of social media.
But I’m not isolated in a bubble somewhere, I’ve heard what’s been going on and of all the ugliness that surrounds us
& as I sit here reeling from the hate that seems to always find it’s way in, I am reminded of an awesome quote by my latest obsession, Rainer Maria Rilke.
It’s simple, it hits home and I just feel the need to share.

” Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage.  Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in it’s deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”

 

As we sit on the brink of a brand new week maybe, just maybe, we will find that beauty and courage in one another, we will begin a domino effect of love and kindness and we will finally notice those princesses.

 Yes, perhaps.
