Full Of Magic

The world is full of magic. 
It truly is.

Sometimes you have to look extra hard for the sunshine.

Sometimes you have to look for beauty in the ruins... the old. the forbidden places,
... and in the mysterious.
The Earth is a Sacred place. 
It is a home to all who inhabit it. 
Big and Small.
Our Mother Earth is full of treasures.
Left especially for us to find, meant to heal our hearts,
and souls.
The sun is there to shine on us.
Give us warmth,
both body and spirit.
And the trees are here to shade us.
And teach us how to persevere.
To stand our ground. 
And reach for the sky.
We live in a giant, beautiful place.
Life is full of twists and turns.
Ups and downs.
Gives and takes.
We can choose our own road.
We can be what we want to be.
No matter the twists and turns.
No matter how rough life can get.

Despite it all...

The world is a beautiful place.
Full of magic.
