Thought of the Moment

New Path

Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation which is not nurturing to the whole person.

- Maya Angelou


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



Kindness is in our power even when fondness is not.

- Henry James


The things you own

The things you own end up owning you.

- Chuck Palhniuk


Be Selective With Your Energy

If you dilute yourself trying to please everyone, you won't have anything substantial or powerful to offer anyone, including yourself. Be selective about where you choose to focus your energy.

- Emily Maroutian


Lust, Love, and Like

Lust is easy. Love is hard. Like is most important.

- Carl Reiner


Real Freedom

We have been taught that freedom is the freedom to pursue our petty, trivial desires. Real freedom is freedom from our petty, trivial desires.

- Russell Brand


Why We Are Here

Remember this. Hold on to this. This is the only perfection there is, the perfection of helping others. This is the only thing we can do that has any lasting meaning. This is why we're here. To make each other feel safe.

- Andre Agassi


Sometimes you just have to say good bye

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

And for ways in which such people have mistreated us, let's forgive them even if they aren't sorry. Let them say we did them wrong in moving forward if this is how they feel. Let's not allow additional thoughts about them steal from our well-being.

Let's protect and cherish our well-being.


What Others Remember About You

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

- Maya Angelou
