Giving ourselves the chance to be encouraged

The challenge is to find a way of life that will be in harmony with your gifts and needs.*
John O’Donohue

This is the pleasure of limits, the fun of play. Not doing what we want, but doing what we can with what is given.**
Ian Bogost

I add milk, or some alternative, to my oats in the morning to make my porridge. A small amount of oats then becomes a hearty breakfast.

Reading the thoughts of others, being attentive on a walk to what is present all around, these are the liquids the contents of our lives require.

More input: we all need to give ourselves the chance to be encouraged every day.

*From John O’Donohue’s Benedictus;
