Beauty in the Moment

"Live quietly in the moment
and see the beauty of all before
you. The future will take care
of itself..."
             ~Paramahansa Yogananda

   I discovered the above quote today and it fit so perfectly with my thoughts! I have been very stressed lately with everything that is happening and all of the demands on my time. I need to stop thinking about the future and enjoy the moment! I can get lost so easily - caught up in things that are outside of myself. I have to be reminded of who I am and get back in touch with what makes me really happy. I've said it often enough - don't forget to take time for yourself and do the things you love! 

On that note I have added sooooo many treasures to the ETSY SHOP. I was out of town for a day or two and I brought a few pretties home with me. My Mum and I have also been busy making things as well so there are some lovely handmade treasures for you to see too. I hope you will have a look! Happy October!

I am sharing with:

    Jennelise, I have loved Yogananda's wisdom for many years, and that is a beautiful quote...also, the book "The Power of Now" literally changed my life...have you read it?
    Wishing you beauty and peace, lovely friend...

    Such lovely treasures! I used to have similar porcelain flowers.....think they were made in Germany during the 19th century.

  15. Beautiful and interesting things! Love how feminine! That quotation was perfect for me. I am practicing looking at the beauty in the moments. I've been stressed and worried about the future this week--which really does take care of itself (I've lived long enough to know, so when will I stop worrying?) Thanks for bringing beautiful things and beautiful words to life!
