GRACE: “…a universe that knows what it’s doing…”

Happy Tuesday to you.
Last week I wrote about Bravery and what it means to me. Today, I write about Grace. It has not been an easy thing for me to channel in my daily life lately.
Grace to me is being open-hearted, seeing the beauty in the least expected places, gaining true insight into who we are, being generous with others, finding the good in everyone, saying thank you, slowing down, and navigating through each day with a sense of lightness. When you move with grace, you move assuredly with a special kind of finesse. You are in control without being controlling. You are kind and open to all the possibilities that lie before you.

EXAMPLE: Lately I’ve practiced Grace by being thankful for my life, everyone in it, and the Autumn season reminding me that it is never too late to turn a new leaf. At any moment I have the choice to to let go and start again. Grace reminds me to trust that I am exactly where I am meant to be and for that I should be thankful.
What does Grace mean to you?

“When we surrender to (Grace) we surrender to something bigger than ourselves – to a universe that knows what it is doing.”
— Marianne Williamson

L1002350“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love – that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
