Courage of the Heart Is Very Rare….#1linerWeds



Sometimes accepting one’s own perfection is the hardest thing to do. We think we are being arrogant or prideful. The truth is that when you look at yourself through the eyes of unconditional love, you can begin to see others in the same way. You begin to see the imperfections not as flaws but as the lovely patina of a life lived fully.




The rain came,

softly at first;

then in wild torrents,

causing the flowers

to shed their skirts

and dance naked

as the skies thundered

with laughter.

  1. Wow and I mean a BIG wow on your photography, Cheryl. Awesome!! So is the quote which is so so powerful IF we really get it and live it! Loved this post just loved it. Rain? Oh yeah we’ve had that too and in fact my post will reflect it. The movie clip has me intrigued and now I must see this film. I am SO into good movies on the days I need rest. Very cool post!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼😎


    1. Hi Amy! 😊Thank you. This movie played many times when the boys were all younger. It always had me captivated. I hope you’ll let me know how you like it. I love when it rains. In fact I just came in from taking some pretty awesome raindrop photos. It’s becoming an addiction with me. 😉


      1. I love the rain too especially when I hike. Lately here it’s been a wee too wet with flooding and tornados. That all coming tomorrow on my post. I will let you know about the movie. And good for you getting droplets. OH yeah they are captivating. World’s within worlds. 😉


      2. Exactly. I love the tiny reflections within them. I look forward to your post tomorrow! I finally just got my Doors post up. Been a long week.. have a great weekend Amy.

      1. Nope. Actually I wasn’t much of a fan of the animation movies, but Sarah is. Since we got married I believe we have seen all her favorite animation movies and the new ones as well. I have lost count of how many animation movies I have seen in last five years. I will ask Sarah about this one and if she hasn’t seen it then this will add to our list.


      2. I actually think you will enjoy it. There are several themes within the main story…family, motherhood, friendship, acceptance, feminism, conservation, animal rights and courage of course.


      3. I’ll discuss this with Sarah during our breakfast conversation. If we find it we’ll watch it and let you know. Have you watched any Indian movie lately? These days the mainstream Indian movies are pathetic and nauseating. Just few good flicks.


      4. If you know of any great ones we are interested. Since I have watched a few on Netflix, now so many show up in my feed and we have tried to watch a few. So many just seem too simple and all the same. Once we watched a few really good ones, the bar is set very high.


  2. “The truth is that when you look at yourself through the eyes of unconditional love, you can begin to see others in the same way. ”

    Perhaps the road to world peace? If we have a humble love for ourselves in spite of imperfections, how can we not love others? Wonderful post, Cheryl.


  3. Wouldn’t it be great if we could come up with a neutral or even a positive word to replace the terms ‘flaws’ or ‘imperfections’? Because I maintain that they are essential to the design, not a departure, or a mistake.

    Lovely post, Cheryl.


  4. I really like the notion that we need courage to be brilliant. I think that’s true. I love these photos and the playful description of the flowers dancing naked in the rain. I love to see the flowers with drops on them, welcoming the sun. Your drop photos are the best – simply the best!
