I have lived thru much drama and devastation as so many others have also; and I greatly benefit from the contentment in my life today and I deserve that peace. But without my trials and life’s painful times I would not recognize the value of this serenity.

"Yesterday is a canceled check, tomorrow is a promissory note, Today is cash in hand ;spend it wisely."
Do not shrink back from something you desire because it's too risky. Just being alive is risky. Don't piddle puddle thru life, rise above and thrive!
To catch myself each time I insult myself will be a challenge, but one well worth taking on. And it's one I can win!
Living means sharing one another’s space, dreams, sorrow; contributing our ears to hear, our eyes to see, our arms to hold, or hearts to love. When we close ourselves off from one another, we have destroyed the vital contribution we each need to make and to receive in order to nurture life. We all have talents and purpose in this life. May I recognize my opportunities to contribute to my life’s flow.
My self-respect is not only essential to me, it is important to the World.
When we stop and truly possess all we have been, and done, we are on the path to becoming who we are.
"You need to claim the events of your life to make yourself yours. When you truly possess all you have been and done, which may take some time, you are fierce with reality"
- Florida Scott Maxwell

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has managed, HE or SHE will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” –Henry David Thoreau
“Make yourself a blessing to someone. Your kind smile or part on the back just might pull someone back from the edge.”—Carmelia Elliot
