“Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.”

Not Psychology

"The answer to the problem of anger is spirituality, not psychology"

Misery

"The mind forever recycles past misery and, when this is not enough, precycles feared future misery." - Dr. Majid Ali

“You cannot delegate personal responsibility.”

—   Joyce Meyer

“Control is an illusion. It’s seductive because it gives a feeling of power. Something to hold on to. So it becomes addictive. It’s hard to give up even when it’s not working. You can’t start a new journey until you let go of habits holding you back.”

—   Leading With soul

Love is a “scary beautiful” thing

Work for yours

“Dues aren’t paid, past tense. Dues get paid, each and every day. The only real measure of your value is the tangible contribution you make on a daily basis.”-Jeff Haden

I don’t understand people who expect life to be easy and smooth sailing. It was never that way and won’t ever be. If you decide to postpone truly living until things are all good you will be waiting forever. If you want something, pursue it. If there is a change you would like to see happen in your life, execute the steps necessary to make it happen. Striving toward these things doesn’t guarantee that they will pan out how you would like them to but it certainly ensures that you will see some positive changes in your life. Stop waiting for that big break, that oh-so-important phone call or that strike of luck and go and make something happen.

“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance. The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of.”

—   C.S. Lewis

I talked myself out of greatness before. I didn’t know it at the time because it hid under the words “what if”, “I can’t”, “I’ll do it next time for sure”. But If I could talk myself out of something I can talk myself into something. So I’m replacing the “what ifs” with “so be it” and the “I can’ts” with “damn sure I can” and the “ill do it next time” with “it’s done”. Feeling: Bold.
