Look underfoot

21 Feb

“The lesson that life constantly enforces is ‘Look underfoot.’ You are always nearer to the true sources of your power than you think. The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.ย  Don’t despise your own place and hour. Every place is the center of the world.”

– naturalist John Burroughs

    So ridiculously beautiful and true! The main reason for why I chose nsoromma is because of the mention of my connection to the divine – divine timing and you are exactly where you are supposed to be.
