At first glance it may appear too hard. Look again. Always look again.
Pain is a difficult companion. There's no getting around that. But, if pain is to be a companion, searching and discovering your own best ways to travel with that pain will lead you to the joy that you long to have. They are your paths, your ways and while my experience and the experiences of others
Your informed, "no," to a particular service allows another to offer their gifted and unreserved, "yes."
Best Friends: we're a parade - even by ourselves!
My courage does not depend on the weather.
Weariness comes, on some days, from lack of service to self.
Who were you before you put yourself last.
I wake up to profound perspective that allows me to celebrate the choices of my moments, of my life.
Manage through the uncertainties. Practice appropriate actions and participate in healthy choices. Value and celebrate the loyalty of the individuals around you: celebrate their competencies and successes, as well as your own. Build up your circle and reinforce it at every opportunity.

Love others from your own abundance. Life Changes. Circumstances change. Sometimes you try to fit your old way of being into new circu
What is our family? We touch our full hearts and see ourselves reflected whole in each other's eyes.
One whispered yes becomes the wind song over an ocean of no's.
If self-validation were our most significant societal measure - we would give trophies to ourselves.
