shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

Far better is it to dare mighty things,
to win glorious triumphs,
even though chequered by failure,

The difference is that one story causes us to suffer,
while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
