Thought of the Moment

Enthusiasm and Endurance

Enthusiasm is common. Endurance is rare.

- Dr. Angela Duckworth


Only if you want to, without creating obligation

When we scratch another person's back, let's be sure it's because we want to, not because we want our back scratched in return.


Listening with Uncluttered Intent to Understand

Listening with uncluttered intent to understand is one of the greatest gifts we can give another person, especially in times of distress.


To see beauty caused beautiful things to happen.

People who see the beauty in those around them cause beautiful things to happen.

- Flavia


People Who Leave Us Feeling Used or Manipulated

Our time here is too precious to spend energy on people who leave us feeling used or manipulated. No thank you, good luck, and good bye are all we need say.


Gratitude vs. Entitlement

Gratitude breeds fulfillment.

Entitlement breeds misery.


Send them love and send them off

Forgive them even if they aren't sorry. Let them be right if that's what they need. Send them love and send them off. Don't tie yourself to small-mindedness, it will steal your well-being.


Real Intimacy

Real intimacy is a sacred experience. It never exposes its secret trust and belonging to the voyeuristic eye of a neon culture. Real intimacy is of the soul, and the soul is reserved.

- John O'Donahue


Why Haters Hate

Haters hate because there's something missing within them or within their lives that they see in you. They believe they can't have it, and that causes negative emotion within them. If they believed they could have it too, they would be inspired by you to get it themselves. It would be a positive emotion. The fact that it brings out hate or jealousy is because they don't believe they can. Belief in possibility is the difference between jealousy and inspiration.

- Emily Maroutian


Your Wellness

The best support you can give to anyone you love is your wellness. When you are well, joyful, fun, and happy, you are the greatest gift to everyone around you. That's when you inspire wellness, joy, and fun within them. When you take care of yourself, you are in a much better position to take care of others.

Your tiredness, sickness, and inability to look after yourself does not support or help anyone. Your loved ones don't want to be the cause of your unhappiness or exhaustion. They want to be the cause of your joy and wellness.
