the ties that bind
an invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstances. the thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break. may you be open to each thread that comes into your life - the golden ones and the course ones - and may you weave them into a brilliant and beautiful life"
i found this piece in a reclaimed frame yesterday by sugarboo designs (i have one or two other pieces of theirs and i love them, i pretty much love every single piece they have actually) at fireworks which is one of my most favorite stores on the planet. it is a little place of happiness for me, i literally feel happier when i walk through the doors. i had a couple of minutes yesterday with the rare opportunity to pop in to the store. i just love wandering around the store and since my opportunities to do so do not come often, i thoroughly enjoy the time when i have it. i saw this piece hanging on the wall. it was one of those "i don't care how much it is, i have to have it" moments which don't come on too often. but when they do, they tend to happen at "anthropology";)
i really connected with the text, and my brain immediately flashed in a rapid fire sequence to people that i have known in my life. those that are in my life now. those that are not physically here anymore. those that were previously very close to me, but no longer are for different reasons. those that were friends/acquaintances in different phases of life. without those interactions, i wouldn't be the person i am today.
i am pretty happy with the person i am today.
being reminded of that in an unexpected moment was worth every penny.
