“Hate. It has caused a lot of problems in this world, but it has not solved one yet.” ~Maya Angelou
“DON’T WAIT. We must generate the life we desire. We cannot base our actions on the actions of others. We cannot wait for others to be kind to us. We must offer kindness to them first. Those who wait to find someone deserving of their generosity may wait forever. Life is not a matter of deserving or not deserving. Life can only become what we dream if we become the expression of the dream we desire to live. Don’t wait. Become a transformative force for good.”
~Ann Mortifee, In Love With The Mystery

“I am a lover of what is, not because I’m a spiritual person, but because it hurts when I argue with reality. We can know that reality is good just as it is, because when we argue with it, we experience tension and frustration. We don’t feel natural or balanced. When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.” ~Byron Katie, “Loving What Is”

Throw yourself wholeheartedly into the task at hand. ~ Og Mandino
“The best way to learn something is to start doing it. You will master the challenge far more quickly and deftly if you throw yourself into the task at hand than if you sit around and analyze how it might be if you tried doing it.
You may be a lot more ready to take your next step than you realize. Take advantage of the opportunity at hand.” ~Alan Cohen, Dare To Be Yourself
You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however. ~ Richard Bach
“Take loving action. The ego seeks recognition, but in a life of Meaning, loving action is its own reward. There are a multitude of ways in which we can give. It doesn’t really matter what we do – the point is to get in the habit of replacing our attention on ourselves with attention toward others, and take loving action.” ~Dr. Wayne Dyer, Take Loving Action
Maybe it’s not about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it’s about starting over and creating something better.
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step.
