kate5kiwis: love thursday


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

love thursday

i'm not a shutter sister, but i love their blog.

have been spazzing a bit about next year and beyond - Bulldog and i popped up to the local school today to have a look around and a nice chat with the principal - so now my head is whirling, whirling...
yep, am rather unearthed about it.
i saw this quote at shutter sisters just now, rather serendipitously. or maybe i was looking for it?:

Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first.
Ask questions, then feel the answer.
Learn to trust your heart.

(Author unknown)

i think i'll do just that. so now i need to work out what is in my heart?
thinking, thinking...
it's love. it's friendship. it's family. it's my babies. it's the beach. it's beauty. it's agony. it's poetry. it's making people happy. it's sunshine moments. it's unanswered questions. it's the breath of life. it's songs sung and yet to sing. it's trust. it's equilibrium. it's the arc of the pendulum.
swinging, swinging...

Your heart seems like a pretty full place, I am sure that whatever decisions are made using it will be the right ones...

I love that photo, what a beautiful mother son moment, it brought tears to my eyes. I am seriously still way too hormonal!

Hope that your neck is feeling better. 5th day without bread so far, keep dreaming about toast! Gonna try and dig my pilates dvd out too, yikes.....X

You know I endorse this quote 100%, I believe that the desires of our *heart* reveal themselves, As your quote says - "ask the questions - feel the answers." I believe that whatever we do can be worked out for the best if we do it with love. Enjoy the process, you could be learning more than you can see right now.

Love your words x

Boy, it's hard to know, isn't it? Someone asked me what path makes me feel excited, giddy? That's the one to take. I know which one that is, still, it's hard.

Love that photo with your boy, Kate. Happy Love Thursday, even tho' it's Friday here and Saturday there!

You've got a lot on your mind, and sometimes that's a crazy place to be. I do believe in following your heart, too. Perhaps if you just sit with all these different thoughts for a bit and be OK with the confusion, what your heart is really saying will begin to be heard over the noise?

I think we do know deep down which path to follow, it just takes a while really to get used to the idea.

There is rarely a need to rush a decision though - take your time till you are happy with it.

Love the photo.

Gorgeous photo.

You will know what to do when the times comes. You will make the right choice, it may seem hard, but it will all work out.
