"You cannot perceive beauty but with a serene mind." ~ Henry David Thoreau

Preface:  Random Acts of Kick Arse is a movement to bring more of {monthly theme} into our lives, and the lives of those around us. 

May Theme:  Serenity.  Find ways to incorporate the concept of serenity into daily life.

Today this is:

A blade of grass, one single blade.
So vulnerable, yet so at peace.

And still it stands.

One single blade of grass.
So miniscule in the fields.

And still it rises.

Me.  My life.
So tiny in this world.

And still I stand.

The seas rage, the wind blows.
Chaos.  Change.  Storms of life.

And still I stand.

Sun-kissed days.  Peaceful moon.
Calm and peace-filled day.

And yes…I stand.

Soul inside.  Where are you?
How do you start my day?

Calm.  Peace. Serenity.

What is Random Acts of Kick Arse (RAOKA)?  With the idea that there are so many ways we can do small things to change the world for good, Sami, from Life, Laughs, and Lemmings took an idea she had and created this movement.  The movement:  A new theme to focus on each month, bringing a little more good to the world.  The movement started in October 2009, and has a core group of participants:

Lori from Jane Be Nimble
Gayze  from Gazehound's Animal Communication
Zeenat from Positive Provocations

Each month a topic will be chosen to focus on, and then at the start of the next month, the participants will write about their experiences from the previous month.

Interested in joining the movement?  Contact Lori for details.

June Theme:  Wisdom (as chosen by me)
