What’s the most beautiful words you’ve ever read?

A couple of weeks ago, I read a post on A Cup of Jo about the most beautiful words she’s ever read.  I loved the post so much that I wanted to do one of my own!  And, yes, it was excruciatingly hard to pick out these TEN quotes :) If you want to check out more words that I love, take a look at my pinterest page for word inspiration (of course).

What’s the most beautiful words you’ve ever read?

i love this one because of its reminder to do what makes you happy, not what someone else thinks will make you happy

so simple and pure

my friend and i were just chatting on pinterest about how this is one of the best passages we’ve ever read so i figured it was only appropriate to include it!

oh my! *heart thump* i love Pablo Neruda.. he is by far my favorite poet and every piece of his makes me swoon

isn’t this just lovely?

i love the fun imagery in this one

i’m always surprised by how Bukowski’s writing comes across as deep yet playful

so true

ugh, so simple. i love it!

why yes, Shakespeare

 

31 Random Acts – Second Recap

Hi y’all.  Apologize for the delay in providing an update on 31 Random Acts on the blog.  Have you been following along on Instagram?

For this recap, I want to continue to thank our strong and mighty group of *now* nine participants with 51 total acts completed thus far!   If you’re interested in participating, it is never too late to jump in and spread some good around this month.  Here is the link to the how-to post if you want some more information on how to get started.

As for my challenge, I hope to finish my ten remaining acts in the next week or so.  But, for now, here is a flashback to my favorite acts during the second recap.

A big thanks to my cousin, Megan, who devoted a big chunk of her weekend visiting D.C. to helping me complete random acts.  Here is one of our favorites from that weekend – a drop off of Halloween fun for patients at a local children’s hospital.

Megan and I also enjoyed giving Subway sandwiches to the homeless.  Most were very grateful for the food!

I left flowers and a little note on a car in the parking lot of a church hosting an AA meeting.  I have no idea if the person was actually participating in the meeting, but I hope that he/she enjoyed the flowers and encouraging words anyways!

Here is a reminder image of my random acts.  I still have #2, #6, #11, #17, #19, #20, #21, #22, #26, and #28 left.  A surprisingly hard one: “Compliment the first five people you encounter one day.” Any ideas on how to complete my acts are greatly appreciated! :)
