Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you” --Nathaniel Hawthorne

Today, I am trusting that the work I do bit by bit makes a difference. (I've spent the morning going through clothes, and throwing things away or donating them to Goodwill.) But I trust this in the larger sense, too.

I am grateful for the gorgeous weather lately that makes me want to go outside, take pictures, sit on the back porch, read.

I am inspired by all the words you guys are leaving here and on your own blogs. Like Dian said when she first initiated the Self-Evidence + Authenticity Challenge, our words, our writing, the community we create with them can change the world. I plan to continue to pledge myself to and write about the 13 topics because I found it incredibly worthwhile and helpful, an inspiration in and of itself.

* I haven't written a tgif post in a while, but you can see Brene Brown's blog, Ordinary Courage, a must read, for the exercise's full explanation. Who or what are you trusting, grateful and inspired by today?
