We sometimes look at our problems as problems. They inhibit our growth when we look at them that way. They should enable us and make us better stronger people. We need help to do that. Life is not lived in alone. It could be lived somewhat in solitude, but sharing is vital.

Daybreak

Silence is a beautiful place to be. I grow in that space and feel the energy renew me. I can stop and listen to what my heart says. Silence, in that way, is the vital pause in life. It is the pause that refreshes to use a line from popular culture. I find humility in my silence because I take time, listen to my self, and listen to the other.

I found this beautiful poem from Nobel Laureate Gabriela Mistral. She was the first Latin American to win the Nobel Prize in Literature.

My heart swells that the
universe
like a fiery cascade may
enter.
The new day comes.  Its coming
leaves me breathless.
I sing like a cavern
brimming
I sing a new day.

For grace lost and recovered
I stand humble.  Not giving.
Receiving.
Until the gorgon night,
vanquished, flees.
