wednesday journal

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers. ~M. Scott Peck

  1. wonderful; ahh yes!
    but we need a break too.
    stretching our inner bridges like an elastic, constructing them all through the soul, it gets exhausting.

    haven’t seen m.scott.peck’s name in ages.

  2. Wow…I keep this same quote typed up and pasted on the wall right next to my computer. A writer friend of mine sent it to me and I really loved it. Mine reads a little differently though. It’s the same up to this point:

    …For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to pay attention and start searching for different ways or truer answers.

    Great photo, BTW – looks like my neck of the woods right now, except I haven’t seen a blue sky like that in days!

  3. It is so nice to look at this cool peaceful photo, as I am sweating my butt off! Ahhhhhh. I just returned from chaperoning a 3rd grade field trip. It’s 85 degrees outside and the bus was noisier than the monkey house at the zoo.

  4. When I was in Utah during the holidays I kept my husband over and over how blue everything looked. I’m happy that you captured that beauty in this picture.

    Very nice photo.

  5. What a gorgeous photo. I love winter…so long as there’s lots of snow. None here on the east coast of Canada, unfortunately. 😦 One can only hope.

  6. Thanks for a positive start to my day. The photo is beautiful and I love the quote ~ I’m going to write it down for future reference when things get difficult.

  7. I went for a drive after a recent snowstorm and snapped that photo not far from my house. We’ve had a lot of snow this winter. Just had five more inches and 2-4 more are on the way. It’s lovely to look at but we are tired of clearing off the driveway! I thought the ruts in the road were perfect for the quote, and I found the quote perfect for those days when we wonder “why this, why now, why me?” 🙂

  8. Yes, I think it is the lucky ones that learn to step out and find other things to make them happy or fulfilled….it is the ones that DON’T step out and search that end up in depressions.
    hugs, bj

  9. Beautiful! I do miss this kind of snow. I grew up in Ohio and I remember snow like this.

  10. Love this photo. It reminds me of a sunny winter’s day in New England where I grew up. I found you off of the Texican’s site. I love books, poetry, and art too!
