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

Going home means getting comfortable being who you are and who your soul really wants to be. There is no strain with that. The strain and tension come when we're not being who our soul wants to be and we're someplace where our soul doesn't feel at home.
Melody Beattie, "Finding Your Way Home"

God loves me enough to let me go through all the lessons I came here to learn, even the ones that hurt the most. His presence doesn't deny me. It's always there to help me see and understand what I came to this planet to learn.
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 nothing final about a mistake, except its being taken as final.
Phyllis Bottome

You can't have a better past.
Richard Carlson

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

If you're going thru hell, keep going.
Rob Estes

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

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

Encourage one another, day after day, as long as it is still called today.
Hebrews 3:13

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

It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.
Judith Kelman

I am not a bad person. I am a person who often does bad things, but more often does good things. And if that’s good enough for God, it should be good enough for me.
Harold S. Kushner in"How Good Do We Have to Be?"

I came to feel that the most loving thing I could do for anyone was to tell them how it was with me and share my imperfections with them. When I did this, most people came back at me with what was deep within them.  
Jess Lair

You are not the momentary whim of a careless creator experimenting in the laboratory of life. . . You were made with a purpose.
Og Mandino in "The Greatest Miracle in the World"

Don’t get hung up on a snag in the stream, my dear. Snags alone are not so dangerous—it’s the debris that clings to them that makes the trouble. Pull yourself loose and go on.
Anne Shannon Monroe

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

Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
Marilyn vos Savant

We grow through adversity. We need not seek it out; we can all look back at moments when our lives were in utter chaos, desolation and despair.  Growth comes when we respond to adversity by stretching just an edge beyond our talent and experience.
Dr. Robert D. Wald

That whisper you keep hearing is the universe trying to get your attention.
