“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”
- Elizabeth Gilbert, “Eat, Pray, Love”
"We become what we think about all day long."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson.
"There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It’s why you were born. And how you become most truly alive."
"This moment is as it is because the entire universe is as it is. When you struggle against this moment, you’re actually struggling against the entire universe. Instead, you can make the decision that today you will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment.
This means that your acceptance of this moment is total and complete. You accept things as they are, not as you wish they were in this moment. This is important to understand. You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are”
- Deepak Chopra, The 7 spiritual laws of success
"Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead."
- LOUISA MAY ALCOTT
did the rose
ever open its heart
and give to this world all of its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its being,
otherwise we all remain too
"”Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint you can on it.”"
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed with the things you didn’t do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. -Mark Twain
