anything and everything.



Consider this...


Anything that annoys you is "for" teaching you patience.

Anyone who abandons you is "for" teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet.

Anything that angers you is "for" teaching you forgiveness and compassion.

Anything that has power over you is "for" teaching you how to take your power back.

Anything you hate is "for" teaching you unconditional love.

Anything you fear is "for" teaching you courage to overcome your fear.

Anything you can't control is "for" teaching you how to let go and trust the Universe."


- Jackson Kiddard, author & polymath.


just a little food for thought :)

What a great share for a Tuesday, definitely needed this reminder today. Great finds at Hagerstown this weekend, I'm a MD gal myself, but have never made it up to the outlets. I may need to make a trip after seeing all of your great loot!

This is such a great post!! And girl, I can't tell you how much this one applies to me - Anything that annoys you is "for" teaching you patience. Especially with little kids. I'm nooo where near ready to have babies and seeing kids that annoy me because they're whiny or throwing fits is building up my patience for when I do finally have kids. :)

Happy Tuesday, friend!

Great post, Ashley. I love the quote.

To answer your question, I shoot with a Nikon D60 with a zoom lens (55mm - 200mm). I would definitely recommend it. Very easy to use and it takes good pictures.

Also, I just want to say thank you for your continue support of my blog. I really appreciate you reading my posts and leaving comments. You're so sweet.

All the best,
Carrie
