Life is a process of becoming. A combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and stay in it. This is kind of death.
— Anais Nin
I am the sum total of everything that went before me, of all I have been, seen, done; of everything done to me. I am everyone, everyone whose being in the world affected and was affected by mine. I am anything that happens after I am gone which would not have happened if I had not come.

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
— Edward Everett Hale
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 thoghts we wish to dominate our lives.
— Henry David Thoreau
Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience in their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or that can literally save their lives.
— Tony Robbins
Always do your best. Your best is going to be different moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstances, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

“What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness; those moments when another human being was there in front of me, suffering and I responded...sensibly, reservedly, mildly.”
— George Saunders
The willingness to forgive is a sign of spiritual and emotional maturity. It is one of the great virtues to which we all should aspire. Imagine a world filled with individuals willing both to apologize and to accept an apology. Is there any problem that could not be solved among people who possessed the humility and largeness of spirit and soul to do either or both when needed.
— Gordon B. Hinckley
You have this idea that you’d better keep working otherwise people will forget. And that was dangerous. And then you realize that no, actually if you take a break, people will be more interested in you.”

June 30, 2014 - Such an important piece of advice.  So many of us stay in relationship that are so toxic for a variety of reasons that in the end all usually boil down to fear.  Fear of making a change and moving into an unknown place where our comfort level is totally off kilter.  Might it not be better to be a bit uncomfortable for awhile than miserable forever?
