Monday Motivation

"Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. "

- Louisa May Alcott


Isn't that a lovely quote? I think so. There is so much beauty in this world. Yesterday, we took a drive to see the fall leaves; the colors are truly spectacular this year. So much beauty surrounding us, but how often do we stop and look?

Sometimes my aspirations do seem as impossible to reach as the sun, but I am determined to continue to look up, reach for them, enjoy the beauty of my life, and see where it leads.

What a beautiful picture of trees!

What colors! I so wish I was up North this time of year.

Thanks for a glimpse into the beauty of your soul.

That is one perfect family shot-lady.

I just barely read a post by Kate Coursey about how climbing mountains can be like writing novels and then I come here and see your beautiful pictures and am reminded that life ought to be lived. Add to that a discussion my husband and I had yesterday about getting out more and seeing the fall colors and .... I think I'm seeing a message in this for me!

I loved that quote Sara. Thank you!
