|04:13 am - The Power of Three - Part I|
Heart-Sister cupcake_goth, tagged me to post three positive things for three days in a row. Sounds lovely! Considering and expressing gratitude is a positive/powerful thing, so anyone else who'd like to follow suit, please do.
Thing the First (not technically a "thing"): Friends who become family. Hearts and souls we seem destined to cross paths with, regardless of where or to whom we were born, that become a treasured part of the stories of our lives and nourish us from within. Friends who are wings in the good times and a net when we fall.
Thing the Second: Earth. The universe/multiverse is wondrously infinite, but we are beyond lucky to have this one vivid & varied jewel, circling through the vast blackness as our inspiring, nourishing home. The sheer number of life forms we inhabit this planet with is astonishing, and it's important to remember the vital, symbiotic connection we all share with eachother. Afterall, we're the newcomers amongst many of our fellow creatures, guests in their home ~ and should extend our respect and compassion accordingly. It's also important to remember as relative newcomers with a great capacity to both create things of beauty & things of destruction, that Nature has over eons learned to provide, balance, and self-regulate in greater ways than we could ever hope to mimic or coerce so a certain level of humbleness in the face of this and our growing effect on it is vital. Just because we ~can~ do something, doesn't always mean we should, and a bit of restraint when making use of limited, irreplaceable natural resources is both a beautiful and very wise thing.
Thing the Third: Art. I can't count how many times art has saved me. When dark & seemingly hopeless moments happen, art in its multitude of forms has had a magical way of coming along and shifting the gears towards thoughts of inspiration, creation, appreciation.

Thank you! That's from the same day as my Miss Havisham shoot :)
I love all these things!
I have been trying to think at least one nice thing about everyone i interact with.

That's really lovely.
I'd have a hard time narrowing down all of the nice things I can think of for you ~ your friendship, voice, gentleness, elegance, poetic nature, compassion, intelligence, generosity of spirit, determination, acceptance, empathy, open-heartedness...
