Courage is the Price

“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.”

“Decide whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying.”

“Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace, the soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things.”

Listen to The Voice

Shel Silverstein

There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
“I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong.”
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What’s right for you — just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.

by Shel Silverstein

Discover Yourself

Bruce Lee Illustration

“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

“I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”

“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”

“Reality is apparent when one ceases to compare. There is “what is” only when there is no comparison at all, and to live with what is, is to be peaceful.”

“Know the difference between a catastrophe and an inconvenience. To realize that it’s just an inconvenience, that it is not a catastrophe, but just an unpleasantness, is part of coming into your own, part of waking up.”

“Self-knowledge involves relationship. To know oneself is to study one self in action with another person. Relationship is a process of self evaluation and self revelation. Relationship is the mirror in which you discover yourself – to be is to be related.”

“Many people dedicate their lives to actualizing a concept of what they should be like, rather than actualizing themselves. This difference between self-actualization and self-image actualization is very important. Most people live only for their image.”

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.”

“As you think, so shall you become.”

“The possession of anything begins in the mind.”

Think About It

jungle

“Imagine that in order to have a great life you have to cross a dangerous jungle. You can stay safe where you are and have an ordinary life, or you can risk crossing the jungle to have a terrific life. How would you approach that choice? Take a moment to think about it because it is the sort of choice that, in one form or another, we all have to make.”

Hope For Paws & People

Hope For Paws

Just a quick post to share my favorite way to spend a little downtime. When I want to take a break and take my mind off of things, I love checking-out an Instagram account called @wolfgang2242 (make sure you read the captions, they’re great), or watching videos from Hope For Paws on Youtube. Be prepared to feel some emotions! Sometimes these accounts will make you clap and smile, and sometimes they’ll make you gasp and sigh. They don’t hide the facts, they share it all. I’m so very grateful for the work they do. They are helping both animals and people, in such a powerful way.
