Life is Like a Puzzle

Dear Beautiful People,

Life is like a puzzle.

We are constantly searching for answers on how to put it all together.  Each piece of the puzzle represents life experience – victory, adversity, triumph, failure (YOU are not a failure but sometimes life doesn’t go as planned), happiness, disappointment, clarity, confusion, growth, new direction, personal development, a friendship, a relationship, a character trait, a choice, a consequence… the list goes on and on.

We don’t always get to choose the pieces.  However, every piece of the puzzle gives meaning to our lives and prepares us to live out our purpose.  Hmmm… how do you define purpose?

So walk in love, joy, compassion, kindness and peace.  Keep creating your masterpiece… your life puzzle.  You are worth it.  You matter.  You are beautiful.

P.S. Don’t be bitter.  Life gets sweeter…that’s what I tell myself, hah!  Keep living…  🙂

Peace,

YaKima

Love is the Answer

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which has the potential to turn a life around.

– Leo Buscaglia

I love the quote by Leo so much I want to share it with you! It sums up how we should treat one another — no matter what race, religion, political party, class, body type, shape or size, sexual orientation, educational background, how many cars, houses or possessions one has, which neighborhood one lives in, whether we agree or disagree on an issue. The list goes on and on and on. So, let love guide you. I encourage you to commit the quote to memory and action. I’m in… Let’s do this together.

Love is the Answer!
