Flowing Clouds

my clouds

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

~ Rabindranath Tagore

Clouds are constantly changing, and so is our life. The secret is knowing how to flow with change. The way to flow is to live in the moments of life, and live in them fully. No second guessing and no looking back at mistakes or what could have been.  Our past is full of lessons learned, and some very painful. We also can’t predict the future, because like the clouds, it is always changing shape.

Learn to give to yourself as much as you give to others. Never let yourself become depleted. People will come and go but you will remain until the end. Believe and invest in yourself as you flow as free as the clouds.

“It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are… than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise.”

~ Henry David Thoreau

  1. We are most certainly being taught how to go with the flow dear lady. A virus it may be, but we, we are the wisdom it leaves behind 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  5. Hi. I like Thoreau’s quote. He was a fascinating guy. My wife and I are annual vacationers on Cape Cod. Thoreau explored CC in the mud 1800s and wrote a very entertaining book about his adventures there.
