Thought of the Moment

Profound Simplicity

As we grow older we let go a little at a time: a bad memory, a negative habit, a toxic friend. Bit by bit we shed what no longer serves us until we reveal who we are underneath it all. We soon discover that even though we gave up many things, there is no feeling of loss. What we have gained in return is far more valuable.

Emily Maroutian

 

Best Measures

Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.

- John Lennon

 

Trust Yourself

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

Giving vs. Empowering

Give others food, and you feed them for a moment.  Empower others with the knowledge needed to consistently earn their own food, and they feed themselves and their loved ones for a lifetime.

 

Connecting

We can only connect with others as deeply as we have connected with ourselves.

 

Power to Choose Our Responses

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

- Viktor Frankl

 

An Opportunity to Gain Clarity

This pandemic will eventually come to an end.  The question is: will we come out of it with a better understanding of ourselves and what we hold dear?

 

Keep Searching Until You Find It

If you haven't found something that brings you fulfillment, this just means that you haven't found it yet.  Keep searching with a hopeful heart until you do.

 

Miserable and Happy People

Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others...By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves.

- Gordon B. Hinckley

 

Only Carry People and Causes We Love

Let's say good bye to people who consistently hurt or try take advantage of us - when we send them light and send them off, we have more room in our hearts to carry people and causes we are genuinely fond of.
