“A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life.” - Christopher Germer

Porcelain-berry is a deciduous, climbing vine of the grape family which can grow, with support, to a height of 16 feet. The unusual fruits of porcelain-berry, however, distinguish it from similar species. The fruit is hard, with the appearance of porcelain, and changes in color from white to a series of pastel shades of yellow; lilac, and green before finally turning a sky blue. All the colors can often be found on a single fruit cluster.

365 days of Autumnal Bliss <3
If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.

My mother used to say to me, ‘You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you.’ And these words played and bothered me, I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume. It was something that I just had to be. And what my mother meant by saying that you can’t eat beauty is that you can’t rely on beauty to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul.

Never apologize for burning too brightly or collapsing into yourself every night. That is how galaxies are made.

Transitions

So I start grad school classes this week and move the week after Labor Day. Life’s been so hectic and with so much change comes challenge … But I’m learning to accept challenges as places to grow instead of places to fear.

So tell me something that is changing or challenging for you right now?


If you love someone, the greatest gift you can give them is your presence
