Thought of the Moment

Winning an argument

If you enter into a conversation or argument with someone you love with the intention of "winning," then you are really fighting a battle. You are trying to take your opponent down or put them in their place. The only thing you are going to win is a broken relationship. Winning over your partner means your whole relationship is losing. The only time anyone wins an argument is if both parties leave it feeling heard, respected, and loved.

- Emily Maroutian

 

Friendship

A good friend doesn't make you wonder if he or she is taking advantage of you. If you have to wonder more than once, ask yourself if you would want a loved one to have that kind of friend over the long term.

As Khalil Gibran once wrote, friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.

 

Prosperity

Prosperity in the hands of a good person is a blessing to the whole world.

- Deanna Uldall

 

We will be dust

Our time here is so limited. Most of us have 30,000 days to live and about 80,000 hours to work before we are gone. How will we use our days and hours?

 

Everyone looks at life through their own unique keyhole

No one else has access to the world you carry around within yourself; you are its custodian and entrance. No one else can see the world the way you see it. No one else can feel your life the way you feel it. Thus it is impossible to ever compare two people because each stands on such different ground. When you compare yourself to others, you are inviting envy into your consciousness; it can be a dangerous and destructive guest.

- John O'Donohue

 

Law of Life

Whatever we consistently work for is what will expand in our lives.

 

To be discerning with our efforts

We shouldn't expect people who take advantage to one day acknowledge they were selfish. People who regularly use others are too focused on their desires to know what shame and remorse are. There is still magic in loving and giving without expectations; the idea is to become more discerning in who we choose to support.

 

Present

Let's not judge one another's pasts - we don't live there anymore.

 

Drown out hate.

Let's be so kind, courageous, and grateful that we don't have room in our lives for hate.

 

Remedy for worry

One remedy for worry is purposeful work, to put forth a good day of effort. Worry and doubt grow when we feel we aren't giving our best.
