“You see what you choose to see, because all perception is a choice. And when you cease to impose your meanings on what you see, your spiritual eyes will open, and you will see a world free of judgment and shining in its endless beauty.” - Paul Ferrini #MindBendingSunday #photooftheday #quotes #lifequotes #amazing #beautiful #mindful #life #inspiration #utah #werutah #lifeelevated #utahisrad #youtah #visitutah #naturalutah #mountains #naturespiration #optoutside #outdoors #instagood #instadaily #canon #picoftheday #utahphotographer #mindfulness #naturegeography #exploretocreate #visualsoflife

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.” - Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet #photooftheday #quotes #lifequotes #amazing #beautiful #mindful #life #inspiration #utah #werutah #lifeelevated #utahisrad #youtah #visitutah #naturalutah #mountains #naturespiration #optoutside #outdoors #instagood #instadaily #canon #picoftheday #utahphotographer #mindfulness #naturegeography #exploretocreate #visualsoflife

“In the culture people talk about trauma as an event that happened a long time ago. But what trauma is, is the imprints that event has left on your mind and in your sensations... the discomfort you feel and the agitation you feel and the rage and the helplessness you feel right now.” - Bessel A. van der Kolk #photooftheday #quotes #lifequotes #amazing #beautiful #mindful #life #inspiration #utah #werutah #lifeelevated #utahisrad #youtah #visitutah #naturalutah #mountains #naturespiration #optoutside #outdoors #instagood #instadaily #canon #picoftheday #nps #utahphotographer #mindfulness #naturegeography #exploretocreate #canyonlands

Every painful thing in your life is not here to paralyze you. It is here to help you reveal the true you. Look for a blessing in it. Let yourself blossom in spite of it, or better yet, because of it. #photooftheday #quotes #lifequotes #amazing #beautiful #mindful #life #inspiration #utah #werutah #naturespiration #optoutside #outdoors #instagood #instadaily #canon #picoftheday #Arizona #utahphotographer #mindfulness #naturegeography #exploretocreate #visualsoflife #nps #findyourpark

“Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. I was better after I had cried, than before--more sorry, more aware of my own ingratitude, more gentle.” - Charles Dickens #photooftheday #quotes #lifequotes #amazing #beautiful #mindful #life #inspiration #utah #werutah #lifeelevated #utahisrad #youtah #visitutah #naturalutah #mountains #naturespiration #optoutside #outdoors #instagood #instadaily #canon #picoftheday #utahphotographer #mindfulness #naturegeography #exploretocreate #visualsoflife

“By taking the time to stop and appreciate who you are and what you've achieved - and perhaps learned through a few mistakes, stumbles and losses - you actually can enhance everything about you. Self-acknowledgment and appreciation are what give you the insights and awareness to move forward toward higher goals and accomplishments.” - Jack Canfield #photooftheday #quotes #lifequotes #amazing #beautiful #mindful #life #inspiration #utah #werutah #lifeelevated #utahisrad #youtah #visitutah #naturalutah #mountains #naturespiration #optoutside #outdoors #instagood #instadaily #canon #picoftheday #utahphotographer #mindfulness #naturegeography #exploretocreate #visualsoflife
