Is There Any Reason To Go On?

"I was starting to wonder if there was any reason to go on, but then I had the most delicious pear."Humans of New York *


I love this post for so many reasons.

I love the daughter's appreciation for her mother's attitude. I love how you can actually SEE how the mother loves life in her dress, her brightly colored cane, and her stunning red lipstick!

But what I love most is how the mother answered her own question, "is there any reason to go on?" by recognizing the deliciousness of life through a pear.

This woman stopped and paid attention to one of the simplest things in life; she shifted her focus away from her pain and onto beauty.

I am inspired. I hope you are too.
