I stumbled upon an amazing blog while pinning on Pinterest the other day and was bowled over by one of the quotes Amanda posted. So much that I had to share it.
The blog is Kind Over Matter. It is all about spreading kindness in the world. Amazing right! If you have a moment to stop by and show her love please do…
But this is the quote that really got me thinking :
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could. — Louise Erdrich, from the Painted Drum
I want to share this quote with as many people as I can… we are here to live…and enjoy it all. Even the painful parts.
Do you know of any other blog sites or websites I must find? Please let me know… 🙂
