a day of hope and rest

hello lovelies! i hope you're having a wonderful long weekend and that you're taking special care to take good care of yourself and be alone with your thoughts for just a little while. i always find days like this good for reflection, because it's a very obvious landmark we revisit every year. although it can sometimes be stressful and bittersweet to realize how quickly time passes, i try to hold on to hope and the promise of looking forward as my foremost emotion.

a few moments alone in a cool bath or shower, a quiet walk at sunrise or sunset or a few minutes outside stairing skyward, i love to take these days to think back to where i was a year ago - who i was at that moment, what i was doing, and how my life has changed and stayed the same. and i think about this idea to hold onto about hope:

"the road that is built in hope is more pleasant to the traveler than the road built in despair, even though they both lead to the same destination."

-marian zimmer bradley

i hope it resonates for you like it does for me. have a great day and i'll see you tomorrow.
