Have courage to change

[The void] It's that place in our lives where what we've been hanging onto . . . clinging to for dear life . . . is stripped away. It's that place in us where we let go of what we know, what we think we know, and what we want and surrender to the unknown. It is the place of saying and meaning, 'I don't know.' It means standing there with our hands empty for a while, sometimes watching everything we wanted disappear; our self image, our definition of who we thought we should be, the clones we've created of ourselves, the people we thought we had to have, the things we thought were so important to collect and surround ourselves with, the job we were certain was ours, the place we thought we'd live in all our lives. . . Surrender control to the supreme wisdom and authority of God and to the Divine in your soul. Step into the void with courage. Learn to say, I don't know. That's not blind faith. It's pure faith that will allow God and your spirit to lead you wherever your soul wants and needs to go.
Melody Beattie, "Finding Your Way Home"

Quit hanging on to the handrails . . . Let go. Surrender. Go for the ride of your life. Do it every day.
Melody Beattie, "Finding Your Way Home"

Sometimes, we don’t get what we want. . . But this is a benevolent universe. And once in a while, we do.”
Melody Beattie

Your body is free but your heart is in prison. To release your heart, you simply reverse the process which locked it up. First you begin to listen for messages from your heart—messages you may have been ignoring since childhood. Next you must take the daring, risky step of expressing your heart in the outside world. . . . As you learn to live by heart, every choice you make will become another way of telling your story. . . . It is the way you were meant to exist. If you stop to listen, you’ll realize that your heart has been telling you so all along.
Martha Beck in "Finding Your Own North Star"

There is the risk you cannot afford to take and there is the risk you cannot afford not to take.
Peter Drucker

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
Wayne Gretzky

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you’ll be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Arthur Gordon

Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid. In the past, whenever I had fallen short in almost any undertaking, it was seldom because I had tried and failed. It was because I had let fear of failure stop me from trying at all.
Arthur Gordon

It is our choices, Harry, that show what we really are, far more than our abilities.
Albus Dumbledore in one of the Harry Potter books

You don't become happy by pursuing happiness. You become happy by living a life that means something.
Harold S. Kushner in
"When All You Ever Wanted Isn't Enough"

Don't wait for some magic gift. Share what you are, dare to be vulnerable, and you will find people who count you among their deepest friends
"Let God Love You"

We're all here to do what we're all here to do.
The Matrix Reloaded 2003

Above all, try something.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you deal with it is what makes the difference.
Virginia Satir

What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?
Dr. Robert H. Schuller

There are times in our lives when we are on narrow roads. At those times, we are fools if we try to maintain our usual speed.
Unknown

Every now and then, bite off more than you can chew.
