a way of life

Hope is not just a last resort.
Grace is not merely an option.
Compassion is not just a trend.
Humility is not just an accessory.
Gratitude is not only a passing phase.
Each is a way of life.
Live them; truly live them.

“I’ve always thought you should be able to freeze time. This way you could hit the Pause button at a really good point in your life so that nothing changes. Think about it. Loved ones don’t die. You don’t age. You go to bed and wake up the next morning to find everything just as you left it. No surprises.
If I could freeze time, this is the moment I would choose, falling asleep on my dad’s shoulder, George on my lap, like I’m eight years old again.” – Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
