Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace. ~ Frederick Buechner
I’m a word person.
Words have enormous power. I have been hurt by them and I hurt others with them. I learn this by journaling, watching words appear in my own handwriting. Oh dear, those are my words. I felt such shame.
But they can also be healing.
On January 1, 2012, I began posting a daily quote on Facebook. A reaction to the mindless words I see there? A way of sharing others’ healing words? A way to mindfully begin my day? A way of making amends for all the thoughtless words I have hurled into the Universe?
A way to be aware that all moments are key moments and life itself is grace.
