To my daughter I will say,
‘See your beauty
without a compliment
or a mirror.’
— 'Blind' by Della Hicks-Wilson (via coldflowers)
We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.
