Teacher Reading Series - Alana Buffington: "The purpose of this glorious life..."

“The purpose of this glorious life is not simply to endure it, but to soar, stumble and flourish as you learn to fall in love with existence. We were born to live my dear, not merely exist.”

Teacher Reading Series - Alana Buffington: "There's no use looking back..."

“There is no use looking back at yesterday. I am no longer the person I was back then. Every morning when the sun rises, I am a changed person. Changed by the experiences I’ve had, the lessons I’ve learned, and the love I’ve received. It’s time to move forward and embrace the life that I’ve been given, be grateful for the many blessings that have been bestowed upon me, and start living a life of passion. There will always be ups and downs, good times and bad, losses and gains. LIfe is about learning lessons, showing love in the process and growing in the beautiful souls we are meant to become. Don’t let yesterday rob you of your happiness today. Every time the sun rises, it’s a new opportunity to make your life the best of your life. Enjoy every moment. “

Teacher Reading Series - Alana Buffington: "If there's one thing..."

“If there’s one thing that I may tell you
Let it be: You are your home,
Your body is the only house
That you will ever truly own,
Maybe it’s got some broken windows
And there are tear-stains on the floors,
Maybe you lock the things you wish you weren’t
Behind its many doors,
But there is wisdom on its bookshelves
And a laugh to light the rooms,
There’s a vase upon the table,
Where the love you’ve grown all blooms,
Dreams sit on the mantelpiece
Next to kindness and your trust,
Where you use them all so often
They have no time to collect dust,
So please don’t look at mansions
With that envy in your eyes,
There’s more that makes a home
Than it’s appearance or it’s size,
Your body is your shelter
So you deserve to love it all,
Don’t let the world stand round outside
And tell you how to paint your walls,
How lucky that you have somewhere
To protect you from the night,
And if there’s cracks left from the past?
Well then they just let in more light.”
