Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Pay It Forward.
Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward

choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE

Understanding the function of expectations
and gently learning to have none;
Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.
In all circumstances I acknowledge this,
IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.

While I certainly do not control climate
and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.

Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it,
while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.

ignorance and crime, and dries up
all the fountains of joy in the world.

in your path than you can handle,
you can always choose to be happy.
Yes, you are that powerful.

While it is natural to feel some degree of
need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to
take actions that others disapprove of,
you have lost control of your own life
and have given your destiny to others.
An excessive need-for-approval
is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Lewis Carroll

While I thought that I was learning how to live,
I have been learning how to die.
- Leonardo da Vinci

- Vince Lombardi

However carefully we plan our future,

and that is good.

while adapting your tactics.
Relax and stay flexible in order to reach
your goals and maintain your happiness.
