You've got to check out this site. I get an email every day (thanks to my mom) from the site, and today's was just beautiful. Here's an excerpt:
Be honest with yourself.
And you will see the wonder that is all around you.
Drop any pretense of cynicism.
And allow your spirit to marvel at the exquisite, graceful beauty in even the smallest of things.
Much of what you long for is already well within your reach.
Let go of the doubts, fears, and assumptions that keep you locked out of life's best possibilities.
