FRIDAY'S FAVORITE QUOTATION !


Friday's Favorite Quote for Friday, February 23 rd

'WHAT IS REAL?'

asked the Velveteen Rabbit one day.
'Does it mean having things
that buzz inside you
and a stick-out handle?'

'Real isn't how you are made,'
said the skin horse.

'It's a thing that happens to you.
It doesn't happen all at once.
You become.

It takes a long time.

Generally by the time
you become real
most of your hair has been loved off
and your eyes drop out
and you get loose in the joints
and very shabby.

But these things don't matter at all
because once you are real
you can't be ugly
except to people who don't understand.'


-The Velveteen Rabbit


On this special Friday may you find the freedom and confidence to be the real you, the you that God made and cherishes!

God Bless! Love, Linda

We are called to be real...but not taught how to be.....

It takes so much less energy to be real....yet we waste energy every day.....

Being real is far more personally satisfying....but we consciously give up that satisfaction daily....

Authenticity puts off an aroma that attracts others....never the less we put of offensive and toxic fumes without much thought....

Being authentically real is the essense of organic.........

Organic is natural........

I am all for the "Natural High"....

If we would all Get Real...........

The world would be an amazing place........

Linda! What a great quote!

"But these things don't matter at all because once you are real you can't be ugly except to people who don't understand."

And sometimes people don't like that you're "real". I know that God made me a certain way and if people don't like that it's just their opinion and there isn't anything I can do to change it.
