The Eye of the Beholder

People often say that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.

– Salma Hayek

The Best Kind of Cleverness

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

Gratitude and Generosity Go Hand in Hand

I read the following quote on the wonderful website gratefulness.org. We are reminded that gratitude and generosity go hand in hand. We can’t help but be generous when we are truly grateful, and when we are gifted through the generosity of others, our only response can be gratitude . . . and we then offer generosity to others.

The extravagant gesture is the very stuff of creation.
– Annie Dillard

Often God’s extravagant generosity is slightly hidden. We simply have to be awake and aware.
