Thought of the Moment

Friendship

I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.

- Helen Keller

 

Self Acceptance

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.

- John Lennon

 

True Forgiveness

True forgiveness is when you can say "thank you for that experience."

- Oprah Winfrey

 

Embrace Change

Some people don't like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster.

- Elon Musk

 

You have to save yourself little by little, day by day

No one will come and save you. No one will come riding on a white horse and take all your worries away. You have to save yourself, little by little, day by day.

- Charlotte Eriksson

 

Calculated Favour Trading

Networking. Win-Win. Mutual benefit. You scratch my back and I scratch yours. Let’s not mistake any of these concepts with the essence of true friendship.

Calculated favour-trading isn’t always evil. But its spirit lives on a different planet than that of a truly good friendship.

 

Family

Family is people you want to spend time with.

 

Opening Space for Consciousness to Arise

If you understand that the inappropriate behavior of your children is a call to increased consciousness on your part, you are able to view the opportunities they afford you to grow differently. Instead of reacting to them, you look within yourself and ask why you react. In the asking, you open a space for consciousness to arise.

- Dr. Shefali Tsabary

 

Trust Behaviour, Not Words

Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

- Dr. Alfred Adler

 

How to preserve a spirit of sharing

Whenever we reprimand and discipline, we inevitably diminish honest communication.

- Dr. Shefali Tsabary
