Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. --Bradley Whitford

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come. Henri Nouwen

According to the Beatles' song, "all you need is love."


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Cor 13:4-7

Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment

I will breathe

I will think of solutions

I will not let my worry control me

I will not let my stress level break me

I will simply breathe

And it will be okay because I don't quit

Other quotes I have up in my house:

"In each of us there is a private hope and dream, which fulfilled, can be translated into the benefit for everyone and the greater strength for our nation." John F. Kennedy 

"At every moment something sacred is at stake." - Rabbi Abraham Joshua Herschel

"Narrow is the path and few who will find it." Matthew 7:13

"Every living thing has been granted the power, if it so desires, to seek an opening to freedom." Carlos Castaneda

"Courage doesn't always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow." Mary Anne Radmacher  (this one on a card that I read each night before going bed).

"Speak quietly to yourself and promise there will be better days

Whisper gently to yourself and provide assurance that you really are extending your best effort.

Console your bruised and tender spirit with reminders of many other successes.

Offer comfort in practical and tangible ways - as if you were encouraging your dearest friend.

Recognize that on certain days the greatest grace is that the day is over and you get to close your eyes.

Tomorrow comes more brightly. "

Mary Anne Radmacher (this a card I read in the evening when I pick up my evening notebook).

 

 

"Receive with simplicity all that happens to you." Rashi

Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors. Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.

-Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi

Hello llee, this is a good topic to put on the Forum, thank you.

 

My favorite:     "No matter what your past, your future is spotless."  Anon

 

"Life beomes much easier when you learn to accept the apology you never got."  Robert Brault

 

"Willing to, is not the same a wanting to; and acceptance does not mean approval."  Anon

 

"When you start doubting yourself, remember how far you have come despite the hardships; how much you have learned; the insight you have gained;  remember everything you have faced and dealt with; all the battles tiny or large you have won; and all the fear you have dealt with and tamed."   Anon

Two by Shel Silverstein:

"Oh, if you're a bird, be an early bird and catch the worm for your breakfast plate.  If you're a bird, be an early bird . . . but if you're a worm . . . sleep late!"

" . . . and all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."

J.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 

 

10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Henry David Thoreau

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Our life is frittered away by detail... simplify, simplify.
Things do not change; we change.

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives. -Henry David Thoreau

Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future. Nelson Mandela

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Nelson Mandela
