“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

“The place where you’re deepest gladness meets the world’s deepest need is where you belong.”

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

“What a child doesn’t receive he can seldom later give.” – P.D. James

“Empathy builds a bridge. Anger builds a wall…Every parenting choice we make constructs one or the other.”

“As we believe so it shall seem to be.” – Marianne Williamson, The Gift of Change

“I can change it. Or accept it. Or leave it. I can see it as a mirror. I can see it as a teacher. I can surrender to it. I can thank it. I can be inspired by it. I can be grateful for it. I can see the positive in it. I can turn it around. I can breathe. I can sit still. I can move on. I can let go. I can awaken. I can start again. Despite appearances, there are always choices.”

“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” – Nido Qubein

“What I’ve come to realize is, that each loud, angrily spoken word is like laying the stones that build concrete walls around the hearts of those we love most.” -Rachel Rowell

“Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.”

“So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key.” – The Eagles, Already Gone

“The secret to success is learning to get out of your own way.”

“The gift being borne by our current challenges is the opportunity to make a large leap forward in the actualization of our own potential.”
– Marianne Williamson, The Gift of Change
