Making time for awe

Never let your life become so filled with work, your mind become so crammed with worry, or your heart become so jammed with old hurts or anger, that there’s no room left in them for fun, for awe, or for joy. ~ Sandra Kring

The colour, the light, the joy. It was there all the time, waiting to be discovered beyond the veils of grey.

  2. When you’re presented with something like this before you, you can’t help but lift your hands in celebration. The colours are absolutely marvellous. A tonic for the soul.
